Hey there! I just wanted to start by saying this community has been so helpful post eye surgeries, so thank you to everyone for answering my questions.
It's been 8 months since my vitrectomy. My last check-up was in December- the surgeon said everything looked perfect and I didn't need to see him for 12 months. I was seen in January for a glaucoma screen, due to elevated IOP post-surgery. My retina was attached and I experienced zero vision loss due to eye pressure. All good! I have been intermittently checked for any little visual disturbance, only to be told I'm fine.
Due to Covid and not wanting to go near a medical facility unless absolutely dire, I wanted to ask this question. The area where my last detachment was had a lot of laser and I've noticed little visual issues there but always fine. What was once a swimming pool effect (best way I can describe it) is now like a clear bubble thing. It's like a clear distortion in the far corner of my retina, that I really only notice when I blink or when I'm looking at a blank wall. There's no visual loss, nothing black, no flashes. Has anyone had this? Is this (potentially) a result of scar tissue in my retina?
I know the default answer is to get checked by your doctor which yes- but I have a young child at home so I'm reticent to go out to hospital settings at the moment. I don't think it's detached as my previous 4 detachments resulted in vision loss and I don't have that. If anyone has had this or knows what it could be, let me know!
I hope you're all staying healthy and well during these crazy times!
