Re: Post-Vitrectomy Vision & Possibility of Repeat Retinal Detachment

The ridge is the result of wrinkle in the retina when it was re-attached during the vitrectomy. Ther OCT showed a literal 45 degree line upward near the center of the vision which then plateaued a little before smoothing back down to normal. Seemed to me to look almost like a wrinkle that got bunched up. It's only good that since I've experienced a 3rd detachment, there's a chance this time around the wrinkle will smooth out this time. Before the detachment, my only option was to have a 3rd vitrectomy only to solve the wrinkle. Now, I'm getting the 3rd vitrectomy either way and hoping the wrinkle is smoothed out this time.
