I had RD surgery 8 weeks ago. I was given cryo, laser and a gas bubble which finally went away on week 6. My retina surgeon said I had a big tear and quite a few holes but the macula was fine ( his quote was "I did a lot of work in there") He released me until December but I still have questions and issues and want to hear from you guys if these things are normal:
1. My pupil was really dilated for about 6 weeks and just recently started contracting a bit (but not nearly as much as the normal eye). Will this continue to improve or is this as good as it gets? Also one part contracts more than the other part, resulting in a lopsided look. My eyes are very light so this is really noticeable.
2. In my peripheral vision to the left, when I look at straight lines they appear wavy. I assume this is where some repairs were made. Will this improve in time? I call this the Fun House mirror effect, but it's not funny!
3. I had LASIK 7 years ago and had the left eye adjusted for reading and the right for distance as most people over "a certain age" do. The detached retina happened in the right (distance) eye. I see very well at a distance with it, close to 20/20 at my last exam, but the vision from close up to about 3-4 feet out is still blurred. This was much better prior to the surgery. Will this improve or will I need glasses? I am tired of reading with just the left eye, and my job is reading the computer all day and this is difficult for more than 3-4 hours at a stretch.
4. I still have a lot of glare in the operated eye and still a lot of floaters. Hopefully this will improve? How long?
Whew! That's enough for now! Thanks!
