Dear Dr.S
You seem to be pretty young for cataract. Did you have a history of trauma by any chance.
You haven't mentioned your current vision with the gas bubble. The time for the vision to recover depends on if your macula was involved(in retinal detachment) and the type of gas. It is perfluoropropane, I would expect improvement after 8 weeks almost.
hope i helped.......
