Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Are you sure he still has a bubble in his eye?
Even the longest acting gas, C3F8 is 99+% gone after 8 weeks......
However as a retina surgeon I have to tell you that, if your husband has any gas in his eye at all, he MUST NOT fly.
I would have your husbands ophthalmologist or retina specialist take a look at him in the few days and, if there is gas in his eye, you will need to cancel the trip or travel by ground.
Does this make sense to you?
I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy with me before rating me.

Thanks in advance, Dr. Rick MD FACS
Thank you for making us laugh and for the great advice.
We are still hoping it dissipates in time.
