Thank you for the reply
My RD was not in the macula area it was in the perifrial. I think it happened in Feb of this year but wasn't discovered until the end of May. It doesnt effect my vision much because I can't see my left nostril...
This epiretinal membrane has only recently developed. I had the buckle 6/7/2012 and the vitrectomy 6/16/2012 as the buckle didnt take in one area...again near my nostril. So my pucker is pretty new. In fact 5 weeks ago when I went in it was forming but not over the fovia. Now it has.
I guess I thought that when they took it off it would be like peeling off a sunburn. Not so...it has done permanent damage to the fovia/macula. The can clear up some of it but it will never be 20/20 even with correction
Have you had it done? If so how was your outcome? Before this grew I had 20/30 uncorrected. I am still hoping for that or something near it.
Thank you SO much for your reply...it's so lonely!
