• Can I get new glasses if I have bubble after retina surgery?


    Question:
    Can I get new glasses if I still have some of the bubble left in my eye?

    Answer:
    Following a vitrectomy or pneumatic retinopexy, it is recommended to wait until a gas bubble clears from the eye before getting a new eyeglasses prescription to ensure you get the correct prescription. Waiting for the gas to clear also allows your retina time to heal and for vision to recover from surgery. If it is an emergency (such as your current pair breaks), then it is fine to proceed with a new prescription.
