Macular hole and cataract

I had a detached retina in June last year that resulted in a cataract and macular hole. I had an operation on Dec 8th to sort both problems. So far, so good. I can see above the gas bubble line but although I can see quite clearly, there appears to be a haze above the bubble. It is possible that it is just light reflecting off the gas bubble?

      Yes Janet but I can't see the answer so thought it may be better to ask someone who has been there. I have got my surgeon's email address as I went private so I'll email him Monday morning. The only thing is, unless you have been through the same thing, how can anyone know what you see from your side of things. Surely they can only guess. I'm on the inside looking out and they are on the outside looking in so to speak.

      I really do get what your going through and do have an insight on what it must be for you, totally support your situation. My two sons had an illness which left them blind which always makes me value sight. Would be nice to know how you get on.

    I had a vitrectomy for macular hole then developed a cataract very quickly.  Then vision became cloudy in the eye that I had done.  I had a capsulotomy.  Just a few quick blasts with a laser and it was back to normal.  When I had the gas bubble my eye would seem hazy at times but as the bubble got smaller my sight became clearer.

    hope you get the answer you are looking for when you contact your surgeon.
