Following retinal detachment surgery, my central vision is now pinched. Will this improve over time?
Maybe: Depends on reversible or irreversible causes. Pinched vision is waviness? Or maybe post retinal surgery with wrinkled retina. If there is heme or swelling in the fovea (macula) that resolves, then vision can improve. If there is scar in the fovea, then the vision won't improved. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

This hole can lead to a detachment. It is uncommon but it can happen in a small % of cases. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Will there be a sensation (pressure, aches, tingling, etc...) in the eyeball after cataract surgery has healed?
Unsure: It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous(jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can anterior vitreous detachment occur before pvd? Does it reduce the retinal risks assoc with cataract surgery? Symptoms other than floaters?
Vitreous detachment: May occur at the level of the anterior retina adjacent to an area called the ora serrata. The vitreous may delaminate from the retina at any location, meaning either posterior or anterior at anytime either from trauma or idiopathic. If the vitreous is already detached from the retina, then the risks of a retinal detachment is theoretically reduced. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
During posterior vitreous detachment, the vitreous separates from the macula first or peripheral retina or no preference?
Generally peripheral: Vitreous degeneration, the conversion of the vitreous gel into a dense syrup, usually starts peripherally and eventually involves the center including the macula. In most cases it is a benign and normal event but if adhesions exist, then the retinal can lift up and tear or become detached. ...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. Conditions like diabetes, uveitis history, and pre-existing wrinkling of the retina (epiretinal membrane) increase risk. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
