    No worries re: name. Sorry for the delay. You shouldn't be able to "see" a tear. A tear alone is unlikely to give you any change in your vision, but you might have symptoms of flashes/floaters. In your specific situation, I think the only way for you to know for sure is to have a conversation with your doctor. If you are still worried, perhaps get a second opinion.

    All the best!

    I had the vitreous only Vitrectoy done early this year. After the surgery I noticed a floater still on my right peripheral vision and a white spot right above it. I asked the doctor about it and he said that the floater was just blood left over from the surgery and the white spot was just gel and would eventually go away. It's been over 9 months and I still see both the floater and the white spot. I suspect there is a retina tear or damage, but how can I tell for sure? and can this be corrected?
    Thank you!

  4. Hi doctor , I will do my operation tomorrow and my doctor inform me he will not put any gas or silicone after finish I have recurring bleeding even I did many laser last 5 year . Is the gas not need it in my case ? No risk of Retina detachment ?

  5. So this video is a bit old, but hopefully I can get a reply?
    I am going to my doctor tomorrow to talk about possibly getting this done due to me having diabetic retinopathy. I am completely terrified of this. I don't want to do it. But I know I will have to if he gives the go ahead. Is there any way I can deal with this fear?

  6. Hello, I am 19 and live in Richmond, VA (not too far from Fairfax). I went in on Friday to have my partial vision loss in the lower left quadrant of my peripheral vision (for my right eye) diagnosed. They said it is a partial retinal detachment. I should be having a vitrectomy within the next week. If I can notice that the vision in my center of vision is distorted does that mean my macula is being affected? Is it too late to save my vision completely?

  7. I am having this procedure done tomorrow morning.  I have already had bilateral lens replacements due to cataracts.  I had my first retinal hemorrhage a year ago February after having the 1st cataract surgery and was dx with Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy.  I have since had many more hemorrhages in the last few months that have completely excluded my vision in the right eye.  I am looking forward (odd to say about an invasive procedure) to having this done so that I can see again, with the hopes that this will eliminate any future hemorrhages!  Thank you for sharing!
