Central vision loss: It is hard to know if the central vision is gone for good. If you only recently lost your central vision, the process may be reversible. If it has been gone for many months, the prognosis is not as good. You should ask your eye doctor.

Go to your doctor: Patients can lose central vision after vitrectomy due to fluid build up in the macula from inflammation called cme- cystitis macular edema , scar tissue called an epiretinal membrane causing macular pucker or other disease processes.
