All the retina specialist told me is that he will laser about 8 lattice degeneration places first and then do the vitrectomy, followed by cataract surgery. He said 3 surgeries.
I've had one retina tear, and one lattice degeneration spot had a hole. The laser surgery for the hole wasn't too bad, but the tear was bigger and the surgery took longer. The burning was almost more than I could stand, plus having that blinding light in my eye and looking at the top left corner for so long.
Is that what the vitrectomy is going to be like too, or the surgery to fix 8 lattice degenerations? If not, what is it like? How much participation do I have to do? How long to fix eyes on a spot, or the blinding light?
Between that and reading about the cloudiness after vitrectomy that never goes away, I wonder if I'm not better off just dealing with permanent blurriness and double vision.
