Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
I'm Camille, and I’m a moderator for this topic. I sent your requested professional a message to follow up with you here, when they are back online.
If I can help further, please let me know. Thank you for your continued patience.
Thanks Camille. No Rush - Dr. Rick has been good to me. Hopefully, he's lying on a beach for a week or two somewhere and will respond when he returns. Thanks for checking though !
Glad that you are spending some quality time with your son - how much of you is jealous that it is not you re-starting college?
Two items: 1. The fact that I had the successful buckle 16 years ago leaves me with at most a 1% risk of re-detachment? Tell me thst's so ! I figured higher.
2. THe neo-vascularization in my other eye happened 13 years ago and had the argon laser. Occasionally, upon retinal exam (which is every 3-4 months) Doc will see a few RBC, have me back in a month and they are gone. Those cannot be from new vessel growth, but - well, I'm not the doc, and that's what I was referring to regarding flying. ANy opinion. (Earn your 'excellent' button !)
Yes, it is only the retina doc (no optometrist) who sees a few RBC from OCT and then verifies upon visual examination - but they disappear by the following month. My guess is that is the general area where the neo-vasc was and maybe there is an occasional leak. OK. You more than earned your Excellent. 1/1000 % risk ?? You made my day !! Thanks again so much and I will keep you updated
