Problems in vision after Retinal Detachment Surgery

Hi, My brother had a RD surgery ( Macula off) on 28th January with Scleral buckling procedure with C3F8 gas bubble (which has gone now). His vision started showed symptoms of improvement after 3 weeks of the surgery but Doctor said it will take up to 2- 3 months to get the vision stabilised. Doctor also said the RD surgery was successful with Retina attached correctly. However, my Brother is having concerns with- a) Wavy or deformed vision of the objects which he started noticing since two weeks of surgery which still continue to exist after 4 weeks.b) Floating objects in the vision which keeps moving when the eye lid moves. What will happen to these? Will they settle out? c) There appears a difference in the vision between day and night . While day vision is gradually improving, my brother still have not seen much improvement in the night vision. Any reason for this?. Will this improve when he gets new lenses?

The vision after a surgery of this nature may not be as good as the other eye but floaters and wavy vision will keep on improving and will stabilize after a while
