Repair Eye Injury Fovea
Maybe: The fovea is the most sensitive part of the eye, responsible for sharp detail vision. Macular translocation surgery moves the fovea to another part of the eye in cases of certain macular diseases, but the success rate is mixed, and the surgery is risky. Discuss all options with your ophthalmologist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Most common procedure to repair a retinal detachment resulting from a macular hole is a vitrectomy (remove the fluids from the back of the eyeball), replace it with a gas, and position the patient face down for some period of time (sometimes weeks) to allow the hole to close and the detachment to resolve. Most macular holes do not cause a detached retina, but many require a similar operation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possibly: The fovea is the most delicate part of the eye. 90% of all vision fibers connect to this tiny area. There are new amazing surgeries to repair conditions like macular holes that once led to blindness, & treatments for wet macular degeneration that would affect the fovea. However, mechanical injury, solar, laser, or welding burns to the fovea would probably be beyond repair w/ current technology. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why do post-cataract surgery retinal detachments occur? Is there some retinal pulling involved from posterior vitreous detachment (pvd)?
Destabilization: The natural lens and its supports stabilize the front of the eye and vitreous. Removal of the thick natural lens and substitution with a thin artificial lens, increases the chance for the vitreous to move in ways that can destabilize the attachments of the vitreous over the retina. If there are weak places, this can increase the chance of detachment, even in the best of cataract surgeries. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unfortunately yes: Retinal detachment often disrupts the supply of blood to the retina. This can result in loss of pressure control, glaucoma and optic nerve damage. Rd surgery often involves a vitrectomy, removal of the vitreous humor from the eye. Optic nerve damage can result from such surgery. Caught and appropriately treated early, rd should not result in damage to the optic nerve. ...Read more
3 weeks out cataract surgery. First, blurry vision, droopy eyelid, & now torn retina. Can it all be repaired? What does it involve?
Yes: Surgery can repair the droopy eyelid as well as the torn retina. It depends on what is causing the droopy eyelid to determine what treatment works the best. Also, depends on how much of the retina is detached to determine what treatment works the best and what the vision prognosis is. Your ophthalmologist will be able to help you. Good luck! ...Read more
Rare: All surgery including lasik carries some degress of risk. Lasik certainly has among the lowest percentage of risk. There have however been no cases of blindness reported in millions of eyes done and the reported problems are quite minor and should not prevent you from having the procedure if you are otherwise a good candidate. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Progressive macular pucker 20/30 vision, distortion & glaucoma. Visual fIeld good,nerve damage 30-45%.Would vitrectomy cause glaucoma to progress?
Possible: Vitrectomy and glaucoma may have an association. It is suspected that glaucoma occurs more often in patients who have had vitrectomy and subsequent cataract surgery. An ongoing clinical trial is aimed to answer this question with more clarity.
