I went back this afternoon to my cataract surgeon. He had not seen me as a follow-up since I had the ERM peeled in my left eye on April 8. I did tell my surgeon that I would not be having the cataract surgery on my other eye for the foreseeable future. He may not be used to hearing this, but fine, OK, no problem.
Now, I did mention to him that my retina specialist had found, using the OCT scan, an ERM in my right eye. Can't see the pucker, it's small, and I hope it never grows bigger.
My cataract surgeon then said that surgery on the eye can sometimes make the ERM worse. I had never heard this. I assume he means cataract removal or for that matter, any other eye surgery. Is this right?
