General & Family Physician Dr. Sumanth.P's  Response

Thanks for posting your query.

You follow ophthalmologists orders.

He would have asked you to wait for the surgery since her vision is quite normal or might have made you wait till the membrane stops growing.

I suggest you to go for the proposed surgery when advised.

Hope I have answered your query.

,Wishing you good health.
