Vitrectomy and lupus

Discussion in 'Optometry Archives' started by melindasaccount, Jan 9, 2006.

  1. Most of you have followed the "cataract saga" here and can read it
    below. My retinal surgeon wants to do a vitrectomy to remove the piece
    of old cataract. He says it may help the pupil constrict normally, but
    there are no guarantees.
    I already had a terrible time with what was supposedly a routine
    cataract removal. I have lupus, and my question is: how many weeks of
    recovery am I going to need after vitrectomy - and by recovery, I mean
    a point at which I can read small print again, which I need to do for
    my job? Melinda

  2. I would think unless something else is going on, you should be able to
    read within a few days, although you probably will need glasses to see
    the small print.
