Second Eye Surgery

Second Surgery

I had my second surgery this afternoon. More or less the same as before but I remained conscious throughout. Didn’t feel a thing though.

This time silicon oil has been injected into my eye to hold the retina in place. I understand that this is a more invasive procedure but also more robust in holding my retina in place. Whereas the gas would have dissolved naturally over time the oil will need to be removed in about three months.


Later in the evening my dressing was removed as instructed. My eye was still numb.


Eye Surgery Failed

Looks as though my eye surgery has failed.

The retina has fallen off again. A second procedure will be required.
