I had a vitrectomy and scleral buckle 1 year ago to repair a retinal detachment. I recovered well and experienced little post-op pain. The cataract that formed was removed 3 days ago and I now have moderate to severe pain when I rotate my eye upward. I reported this to the surgeon at my next-day recheck, and he said this was normal. My eye pressure was up slightly (25) and he inserted a needle to promote fluid drainage, saying the trabecular mesh work sometimes collapses and this fixes it. I called again yesterday to report the pain hadn't changed, and he still insisted this was normal. I am wondering if the scleral buckle somehow shifted due to the increased pressure or some other reason. It is a holiday weekend, so I don't know when I will be able to contact anyone, but I plan to call the retinal surgeon to ask about this. Any other ideas why I might be having pain here?
