Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
I am glad to hear that you are, finally, on the brink of obtaining good vision after what must have been a very severe ocular trauma. Let me address each of your concerns in turn:
The preop drops are to help prevent infection and keep inflammation down. I agree with their use.
The floater is from your vitreous and, since your posterior capsule, perhaps your entire lens capsule, was damaged and/or removed at the time of your trauma, your surgeon will have to remove some of the vitreous when he puts in your new lens. Unless he is a retina specialist, he will most likely only remove some of the vitreous which means that there is a chance you may still have floaters after the surgery. Only time will tell.
The best news of all? Your retina has been checked and found to be OK :)
Don't worry about the pupil shape/size. It can be made smaller if needed with a special suture, either at the time of your lens placement, or later if needed.
Your ophthalmologist/surgeon will closely monitor your eye pressure, both before and after the surgery. You don't need to worry about that right now.
I think you have covered most everything. I can't think of anything special you need to ask your surgeon at this point.
It sounds like you are, and have been, in excellent hands. Best of luck to you!

Oh...Hi. Welcome to the chat room. I was just answering your question.
If the floaters persist again,what do i do
Don't worry about them.
What can you do about them? Well, floaters don't go away, and they don't really get worse. Over time they tend to "sink" out of your central vision and you brain "filters" them out so you don't notice them so much anymore. They almost never cause significant visual problems except, of course, if they cause a secondary retinal detachment as discussed above. The only way to decrease or remove the floaters is with a major surgery called a vitrectomy. As a retinal specialist for almost 2 decades I've only done this procedure to remove floaters in a handful of cases.
Your doctor will do a limited vitrectomy and, like I said, that may get rid of 'em. If not, the risks of a full vitrectomy is not worth it.....if you, God forbid, have a retinal detachment a full vitrectomy may be done to fix it, and then you won't have any floaters. Let's just hope you don't need the services of a retina specialist. :)
would this insertion of lense affect my corneal graph at all.
It could, but it seems like your have a very good surgical team and they will be extra careful with your graft.
I'd not worry about that right now.
Are you a little scared about this whole thing?
Are you still there?
I guess you have stepped away from your computer....
