Vitreomacular Traction - Preparing for surgery

Vitreomacular Traction - Post-surgery care

Following surgery, the patient will need to lie in a face-down position for one to two weeks to allow the gas bubble to press against the macula and seal the hole. The eye will refill naturally with fluid. The success of improving the vision varies from person to person and ranges from 60% to 80%.

Eye drops will be dispensed after surgery and should be used as prescribed. Good eye hygiene and avoiding injury to the operated eye are important to reduce infection and problems after surgery.
