2 detached retina after cataract surgery
I had a vitrectomy for a detached retina on 12/20/19. A gas bubble was placed in my eye and it's still there. I work in construction. When can I go back to work?
Do I have to wait until the bubble is gone?
Thanks for your Question
Recovery after retinal detachment surgery depends on many factors such as type of gas, instructions from your surgeon, type and location of retinal detachment and your occupation.
Does your occupation require heavy lifting or just office based. You should ask this question to your eye surgeon.
In general patient can get back to work 2-3 weeks after retinal detachment surgery
