My left eye's vision is still a blur. In fact when I look down, it's like looking through water or a big tear. The gas bubble is decreasing but at the last doctor appointment it was only reduced by 20%. At that rate I should have the bubble gone in 6 more weeks. I have an appointment in 3 weeks and will get an update then. This means NO travel to higher elevations and absolutely no flying in an airplane until it is completely absorbed. At this rate I do not expect that it will be gone before the end of March or early April.
Now for the not very good news I got from the Doctor. Everyone who has this type of surgery will develop cataracts because of the gas bubble in the eye and the steroid drops used after surgery. Usually the cataract surgery is needed between the first year up to five years. The good news is that this is a very common surgery and that the recovery time is about an hour.
