Smile macular hole

I have been reading other posts on macular hole surgery. I hope things have turned out better than their last post. My surgery is scheduled for Nov 1st with pre and post op check up. I was advised the gas bubble will dissipate 7 to 10 days after surgery. My retina consultant knows I will be traveling 3 1/1 weeks after my post op check up. Im aware of the no travel until the bubble is gone and at least three weeks after that. No mention of staying face down so I will check further on that. Im wondering if the results from surgery vary because of the Dr's experience in the field or local optometrist referred me to a local opthamologist who in turn referred to a specialist in the field.

Re: macular hole

I had macular hole surgery over a year ago. I had the "face down" recovery. Complete face down position for 8 days. I leased equipment to make that a little easier, but it was still quite a deal. I had floaters for quite a while after surgery and still have them occasionally and I have scar tissue on the macula, which alters the sight somewhat. When I read, I do not see the whole word that I am looking at and the words seem to jump around on the page. Shortly thereafter, I had cataract surgery on that eye and next month I wll have cataract surgery on the remaining eye. Hopefully, this second cataract surgery will improve my sight greatly...
