• Can you feel the oil bubble in your eye after a vitrectomy?


    Question:

    Can you feel the oil bubble in your eye after a vitrectomy?


    Answer:

    Typically, after a vitrectomy (a surgery that treats problems with the retina) the eye may be irritated for a few days to a week. It should feel a bit better each day after surgery. If it is feeling worse, you should contact your surgeon. There is no sensation directly associated with a silicone oil bubble in the eye.
