    I had the Sleral Buckling surgery 5 weeks ago and suspect to see the
    buckle shadow in my peripheral vision, which consists of a big
    circular ring along the whole field of vision and a particular darkish
    dot at 6'oclock.

    Searching the internet and find a person described a similar situation
    after the buckling surgery and the doctor thought it may be the buckle
    or due to a stroke of optical nerve - this is pretty scary.

    So I want to listen to you guys experiences on buckle shadow or
    optical nerve stroke after the buckling surgery and understand more
    about my condition.

    Also, my doctor said as I had congenital cataract some 30 years ago
    without IOL implantation, so I may see the buckle because of
    refraction differerence without the lens, I doubt it though.

    Any comments and sharings would be more than welcome!
