I had a vitrectomy (to remove large floaters after a PVD) 2

Customer Question

Hi I had a vitrectomy (to remove large floaters after a PVD) 2 weeks ago. Everything was great at my follow-up today. Pressure 18, no pain. Vision was 20/25 but was 20/20 before surgery. Just wondering if there is a chance vision will go back to 20/20 after a few more weeks of healing?
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Any other symptoms?
Customer: Not long. No
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No.

Yes, there is a chance

It should go back to what it was prior to the surgery
