Post op check up Tues went well.

Don't need to see me for another 4-6 weeks.

Gas bubble nigh on dissipated into the eye now, unfortunately, but as expected, the long sight in the eye is simply not there.

Short sight that was blurry pre-detachment is now clear as a bell though, boo!!!!!

Fingers crossed the vision improves in the coming months. Was told pre-surgery it would be 6-8mths before the 'true' vision/damage would be a reliable outcome.

Just a note for anybody who ever suffers any sudden change in their vision, floaters, shadowing, white lights etc etc.... DO NOT sit on it, get yourselves checked out asap as you risk either permanent damage to your sight or even worse, the loss of sight in the affected eye/eyes.

That's a long time for recovery. Hopefully all goes well.

Did the hospital give you an eye test to show you are safe to drive? I was shocked how poor your eyesight can be to drive. It was easy to pass.

I think the fact that I can read number plates from a distance, albeit via the 'good' eye would always be a pass on the driving side of things. But no, they didn't mention driving during the eye test.

Unfortunately for me, I'm an auditor where I need to drive and then closely inspect installations.
It's that side off things where it'll screw me over for the short term, possibly long term if it doesn't improve.

Until I'm personally happy/comfortable with my sight, I'll avoid driving for another couple of weeks. Work are sound with my progress and recovery, again, they only want me back when I'm happy to be back, hopefully within the next 2wks.

I think the longer recovery is based upon how much damage /time the detachment was there before diagnosis of it.
I may have said in a previous update that the surgeon told me that my central vision would definitely be affected. He also stated that the fact that I had pushed for a second opinion and a more hands on diagnosis, had probably saved my sight as any longer without intervention would've have been irreversible,

If it’s any compensation Liverpool have been awful, you haven’t missed anything
Seems you already have better eyesight than the front 3, hang on in there chap.

Having had laser eye surgery nearly 20years ago I must have only “suffered” 24hours of serious discomfort, but my thoughts are with you.

For anyone else who follows this or a similar path, just be mentally prepared for the smell of bacon or pork scratchings when your own flesh is frying under the laser beam, it’s quite a surprise.

The symptoms of a potential detached retina are an emergency. My huge floater arrived overnight, like a big black arch over my right eye.

Had me in that day after to see a consultant at 8pm, back the following day to look behind my eye. They said,i they can see the damage, which was in full focus, the concern is if shaded section of vision strong from light to shade laterally or otherwise.

They have been very prompt, although the clarity of the big floater has diminished addition bots float about now also in focus, I tried to read the paper hard work with things moving about.

So it is currently stable he said, it can happen in the other eye plus part of that development over the years.

More visible on clear background as my brain has become familiar with this view, I still have floaters filling my vision like a trailing balloon, in has not been painful more frustration than anything, take care guys.

Hope it keeps improving and are they not going to use laser to weld up any further holes.
When my Mum had detachments in both eyes they put the retina back by freezing and a full op by cutting into the eye. Then laser after that and all was good.
My Gran had hers done by the bubble and it was good in the end but slower to heal and improve.

I am beyond paranoid now and I would say anyone who suspects anything like that, ignore the opticians etc, straight to A&E even better if you are lucky to have a specialist eye one near you.
