• How can I fix variance of image size between eyes after retinal surgery?


    Question:

    I had a retina surgery done on my left eye and it was terrific. But now the image in the left eye is slightly smaller than the image in the right eye. I am a competitive sporting clays shooter, and when the clay target passes from left to right, there is a pause in clarity as the brain adjusts to the new prominence in the right eye. Is there an eyeglass technique which can enlarge the left eye image size to equal the right eye image size?


    Answer:

    The difference in image size between the two eyes could either be a change in the refractive error in the eye related to the retinal attachment surgery or also possibly related to some residual swelling in the central retina. It is important for you to return to your surgeon to determine how best to address this concern.
