@bobbyo I just last week had my annual visit to my local ophthalmologist. She reported that my eyes look healthy, no macular degeneration, no glaucoma, retina is fine. She was pleased and so am I. I don’t know whether your retinal repairs are a factor in the possibility of your having the Floaters Only Vitrectomy but I can tell you that I had cataract surgery on both eyes prior to the Vitrectomy. In addition on one of my eyes I had had several additional surgeries including having the corrective lens that was placed during cataract surgery needing to be replaced (because it had moved out of position) and PRK to tweak my correction. As for the floaters, in one eye they are completely gone. In the other, after the Vitrectomy I did notice a small one linger but it eventually settled down. My vision is good, I pass the drivers test without eyeglasses although I choose to wear them when I drive. Otherwise I don’t wear glasses. Good Luck to you. Don’t hesitate to ask if there is anything I can help with.

Dear Susan, I had inquired with Dr. Sebag about my FOV risk assessment in light of the fact I’ve had the retinal surgeries and cataract surgery. His response was positive and encouraging! I am going forward to optometrist and retinal surgeon appointments to find out all I can think of. I’ll keep you updated. Thanks so much!
