Ok. It is possible that a part of the retina was touched by a tip of one of the surgical instruments. The unit used in the membrane peel has a very soft tip and should have been safe.
If you are having significant visual problems from this "scratch" then it is likely that the central part of your retina, called the macula
, was involved.
Unfortunately, other then giving the retina time to heal on it's own, there is nothing to do to help the process. If the area that was scratched was not damaged much (a very superficial touch) and most of your difficulty at the moment is due to swelling and not actual destruction of retinal tissue you should notice some improvement over the course of a month or so.
I'm sorry to hear that you have experienced so much difficulty after your membrane peel. :(
Does this make sense to you?
