Unable To Read When Upright Post Retinal Surgery?
Hello, 3 weeks ago I had silicone surgery in my eye, currently my eye condition can only read writing when my head is bent, while when my head is upright I cannot read the writing and it looks very blurry like blurting. I want to ask, is that the effect of the silicone installation? And if after the silicon is taken can I read in an upright head position? Thank you doctor …
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should first explain, what you mean by the installation of silicon in your eyes is the act of scleral buckling (meaning that on the outside of your eyeball is fitted with a kind of silicone belt to press your eyeballs) or you mean is vitrectomy using oil silicone (meaning silicone oil is injected into your eyeballs)? Are other actions such as removal of the eyepiece? After you experience retinal detachment (retinal detachment), you go directly to the ophthalmologist and immediately do the action, or is there a long delay before the procedure?
If what is done is scleral buckling, usually blurry eye symptoms will only occur during the first few days after the course of action. When this is done is the injection of silicone oil in the eye, then in some people, blurry eye symptoms can indeed occur prolonged (for example if silicone oil is injected too much). When other actions such as removal of the lens of the eye occur, the symptoms of blurry eye are also normal. If the retinal detachment treatment is delayed (meaning that therapy is not immediately carried out), then the blurred eye that you experience can also occur because the retina is already damaged, in this case, the blurry eye symptoms will occur permanently.
You should control according to the schedule given by your eye doctor. You can tell your doctor about the symptoms that you are feeling at this time so that further tests can be done on your eyes. Your eye doctor knows better the condition of your eyes and also what actions are carried out on your eyes so that they can provide a better explanation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
