I m a 50 year old female and had retinal detachment surgery with the sceral buckle and gas bubble four months ago. Retina doctor said it has healed up well and referred me back to the opthamologist. I saw him three weeks ago. He did a vision exam and said I have a cataract now but said contacts or glasses would correct my vision to 20/30. He referred me back to the optometrist for my prescription. I saw the optometrist last week, and he said the cataract has progressed rather quickly and he could not even correct it to 20/50 so he recommended I see the opthomologist or retina dr to get cataract surgery. Is four months too soon after the retina detachment surgery to do cataract surgery? I m concerned with some articles I have read where the retina has re-detached after cataract surgery.

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?
