Vision improvement after laser surgery for Vitreous hemorrhage ,is this a long time to develop more complications ?

My father developed retinal tear and vitreous hemorrhage in one eye suddenly with bleeding in the nerve. With doctor's suggestion he underwent laser surgery immediately. He is 50 yrs of age and had no diabetes symptoms. Now its been 4 days since the operation is done. I want to know that how much time he has to wait for vision to regain. Doctors have said to wait for 15 days. Is it OK to wait or is this a long time to develop more complications ?

HELLO
GAINING VISION AFTER RETINAL SURGERY IS NOT A MAGIC.
it will take time for vitreos hemmorhage to resolve and you need to go for regular retinal examination.

welcome to healthcaremagic portal
6 weeks is the approx. time for most of these recoveries to occur.In the mean while you have to have periodic checkups to rule out any complications which may arise and dealt with.long term follow up is also necessary

Hi, I had a small vitreous hemorrhage following PVD about 8 months ago (an initial streak followed by thousands of black dots in my vision) from a blood vessle tear on optical nerver. The blood cleared fairly quickly the first two weeks and my corrected vision is 20 20 but has not gotten better since then. When I adjust focus and stair at white background, I can actually see hundreds of tiny circles that I presume are ghost cells. The Dr. was primarily concerned with retinal tears which thankfully I didn t get and has said there s nothing that can be done about a small bit of residual blood in vitreous However, it is very annoying as it swirls around every time I look around. Again my eyesight has returned to 20 20 but I haven t managed to ignore it as I m involuntarily reminded every minute or so. There are two slightly larger faint spots that are yellowish in sunny conditions. I read that in Asia (Japan, China, Korea) they treat vitreous hemorrhage with iodized lecithin (wo-liteng of jolethin) but there seems no treatment here shy of victrectomy which is not indicated. Do you have any suggestions? Does this ever get better on its own? It s been 8 months. Thank you.

I have had a vitreous haemmorage in my right eye after a five hour flight. I am scheduled to do another 5 hour in 3 days time. Will this exacerbate the bleed? I had a worse haemmorage in my left eye 3 months ago which has left some cobweb like disturbance. Thank you Maxine

My retiinologist said I have retinal scarring which often happens in older people. He said it is caused by the vitreous gel on the retina breaking loose leaving a little bit of the gel behind on the retina and causing blurriness when reading. I cannot seem to find anything on this subject on the internet. Are you familiar with this condition?

My 31/2 month pre-mature daughter was recently taken to the hospital due to bleeding around her brain from her retinal cord connected to her left eye. Specialist say that this may be the result of shaken baby syndrome. Though my wife and I are the only gardians of our child at all times. i have two questions. Is it possible that this could be the result another kind, type, or way of abuse? Or could she have had very little bleeding when born and time built all of now?
