The advice you've been given is sound and standard practice. When people with macular puckers have cataract surgery it is much more likely that fluid will collect under the pucker after cataract surgery (cystoid macular edema) and that is likely why you have continued on your two eye drops. So keep your appointment with the retina surgeon. Most puckers do not need to be operated on.
I had a pucker that held stable for a few years. I had cataract surgery and it was still stable for 2 more years BUT, this past year, it got suddenly worse in 6 months so I had the surgery to have it fixed. At this date, almost 5 months later, my vision is better than it was before the surgery and before it had gotten worse. It will never be "normal" and I understand that. To make my situation worse, I had a blood clot burst on the facial nerve on that side 14 years ago, so that side is mostly paralyzed.
