    Question:

    Are brief periods of looking forward or up harmful when recovering from a vitrectomy? Could such events significantly prolong the need to face downwards or cause alternate damage?


    Answer:

    Looking forward or up may or may not be harmful depending on your case. Please discuss the specific circumstances of your case with your retina surgeon to determine the potential harm of various positions after retina surgery.
