• Should I worry that my vision has not improved since my vitrectomy?


    Question:

    I had a vitrectomy (surgical removal of fluid inside the eye) with gas bubble about five weeks ago. The bubble has dissipated to 20 percent but my vision around the bubble is very blurry—like looking through a greasy window. My vision was much better before the surgery. Will my vision improve over time? If not, is there a procedure to improve it?


    Answer:

    The symptoms you describe are typical for an eye with a gas bubble. Usually, the vision and symptoms will improve once the gas bubble resolves.
