• Blurry Vision After Retinal Surgery


    Question:

    Is it normal to have blurry vision six weeks after retinal detachment surgery? I also see a half circle and the top line of it blocks some of my vision.


    Answer:

    It is not uncommon to still have blurry vision for several months after retinal detachment surgery. This could be related to a small amount of residual fluid from the detachment that has not been completely reabsorbed yet. Or It could be due to the retina's light sensitive cells, the rods and cones, still recovering from the detachment. It is critical to discuss this with your surgeon to make sure that he or she feels you are on the proper road to recovery.
