    Question:

    How long is silicone oil left in the eye after a retina repair?


    Answer:

    There is no specific time for silicone oil to be removed from the eye. Most surgeons prefer to leave it in the eye for a minimum of three months. However, if it not causing any complications, it can be left in the eye indefinitely.
