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.
