In most cases, it takes around 2 to 4 weeks for the vision to become clear after the vitrectomy.
The extent of the clarity of the eyesight after the surgery depends on several factors, including:
. During vitrectomy, multiple incisions may be taken on the white of the eye called the sclera. If the stitches are close to the cornea, they may change the shape of the cornea resulting in blurry vision.
. The eye drops used for the dilatation of the eyes for the surgery may cause blurring of the eyesight. Your doctor may recommend that you continue to use these drops for 5 to 7 days after the procedure. This may cause the blurry vision to persist for longer.
. If the vitrectomy is performed to repair a larger hole in the retina, the retinal tissues may not heal completely, possibly resulting in persistent vision loss.
. If the vitrectomy is performed to repair the swelling in the retina caused by diabetes, it may heal to some extent, causing the eyesight to be clearer. This is dependent on good blood sugar control with appropriate treatment and possibly a change in diet or lifestyle.
