Air Bubble After Cornea Surgery
What would happen if fluid collections and air bubbles around anorectal anastomosis cannot self-resolve properly after lar surgery?
Depends: The eye usually starts to look and feel better after a couple of weeks. Visual recovery depends on the severity of the underlying retinal disease and what techniques were used during surgery. For example, if gas or oil where used, your recovery might be weeks or months. Hope this helps. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Whats better scleral buckle or gas bubble for an retinal detachment? Does the gas bubble move around?
It depends: A retinal surgeon may chose to use either or both in a surgery to repair a retinal detachment. Each has pluses and minuses. A scleral buckle can change the shape of the eye, making it more nearsighted. A gas bubble can cause the eye pressure to increase. Gas bubbles move with the eye and will gradually be absorbed by the body. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Foreign body sensation in eye when blinking, after chalazion surgery done. How long will it persist?
Heals rapidly: Chalazion removal is done from the inside of the lid using an inverting clamp. The inside opening can touch the eye with a sensation like a foreign object. This should rapidly disappear in a 1-3 day interval. If persistent after that, especially if the vision is affected, then see the ophthalmologist who did the surgery. ...Read more

Perhaps: Corneal abrasion at the time of cataract surgery can happen, but it is very rare. Certain conditions can increase the incidence (dry eyes, blepharitis, even previous lasik). The retinal swelling also is somewhat rare to the level you are describing, but it too still happens.

Does Photo-Therapeutic Keratectomy surgery fully remove scars from the cornea? Will my cornea look normal again after surgery?
Persistent Seroma: Seromas following surgery can be very frustrating for both the surgeon and for the patient. Though usually most seromas get better with time occasionally there are some seromas to refuse to go away. Seromas that have been present for a long time tend to form capsules which prevents permanent resolution. Sometimes these chronic seromas need to be surgically removed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
May be normal: Retinal surgery can leave some vision loss while it repairs a larger problem. Often, the remaining damage to the vision is much smaller than had no treatment been instituted. If the shadow area has become larger or your vision has decreased since the surgery, see your retina specialist immediately. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possibly: Possible, but most likely not, infections are rare. You need to see your eye doctor immediately. If it is an infection a delay in treatment of just a few hours can make the difference between seeing perfectly vs being blind the rest of your life. Other possible causes of redness could be uveitis, allergy to drops, dryness, corneal abrasion. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What if air bubble remain in front of lens after phacoemulsification and is blurring the vision? Will it be alright...?
Allow time: Occasionally air is left in an eye on purpose to help keep tissue in proper position during the healing. Less commonly it is not on purpose. In both instances, the body, with fluid exchange that is natural, will absorb the air and while it interferes with vision, when absorbed, you should achieve your potential best vision. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can a dry right eye after lasik cause blurry distance vision? Close up vision is fine. I'm 3 weeks postop. Hoping it will settle down in coming weeks?
Dry eye: Dry eye after lasik can cause blurred distance vision. It resolves with time but requires treatment to minimize effect on your current vision. Try frequent non-preserved artificial tears, ointment at night, omega-3 fatty acid supplements, and warm compresses. If no improvement, see your surgeon to consider Restasis and/or punctal plugs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
