Re: Worse since the vitrectomy
Thanks for your responses Sabrina and Dancinboots. I know that a small piece of the membrane was left in place where it's attached to the macula but the surgeon explained that she couldn't cut any closer without risk of damage.
I am seeing my local ophthalmologist in a couple of weeks and, if no improvement by then, I will ask to go to another surgeon for an opinion.
In the meantime, I am continuing to use Pranox (NSAID) drops in an effort to reduce the macular oedema. (How the drops get to the back of the eye is a mystery to me.)
