A 42-year-old female asked:

Is it normal to have debris floating around in the new vitreous gel after retina pvd surgery? i am 21weeks post op and gas about 50% left so i'm starting to be able to see above the gas bubble with tiny specks of black dots not like original floaters?

Call the surgeon if you are unsure about your symptoms, but in general it is fairly normal to see floaters for a while after vitrectomy as the gas bubble decreases in size.
