Can eye drops cause retinal detachment – page 3 gas leak los angeles

" This is why I didn’t watch anything anymore here until I had my FOV. People scaring each other with fairytale stories! It’s in one word BULLSHIT !! I just came out of bed cause I had the flew and I had a FOV 6 days ago and see as sharp as before. Only my pupil is still big because of the eyedrops I got friday before the FOV so I cannot see up close now. I have no side-effect what so ever. I people want to help each other do not post rubbish. If the read more… outcome was always bad no-body could do a FOV. I hold nothing againt you LAAAARGE FLOATERS, but there are people who come here the first time and read this rubbish and think you speak out of someone who knows everything about it and had done a lot of FOV’s I know your scared, but I think you making yourself crazy…just like I did for 4 months. Denying…accepting…your floaters, but still being frustrated and get as much info out of anybody as you can get. But guess what…. This is it…. you know all you need to know. There is no wonderstuff to get rid of it. Only FOV will do and what happens after that…..nobody knows. Life is taking riscs and this is in every surgery not only your eyes….also in your work in your life etc etc. If nobody took riscs……technologi would not get more advanced. I took the step knowing what the REAL riscs were. And compare other surgeries …. it’s not even that dangerous at least if your being helped by the right doctor. Perhaps the Doctor you talked to has not the experience and just made up a story to get you out of it so he/she won’t have to do your FOV. In the Netherlands they first didn’t want to do FOV because of the risc of cataract and retinal detachment. New methods are now being used and a 3 hospitals are already doing FOV. Belgium is far ahead with there methods and experience so talk to them. I know this board is read by a lot of people so it’s important to listen to the people which had a FOV for real like myself. If I look at a SHELL sign.. I see SHELL just as clear as 8 days ago before the FOV. I didn’t even acspect to recover that quickly to be honest. Cause my eye isn’t red anymore….no flashes, shimmering or what so ever and that after 7 days after the FOV. Only my pupil is big of the eyedrops…and that should be gone in 1.5 week which is common. I know how you feel believe me we are have al been where you have been. I was realy stressed out first and cried like a little kid during the summer when I heart nothing could be done about it. Whining doesn’t help but after it I got back up and read on this board. If I had read stories like AFTER FOV THERE IS ALWAYS COMPLICATION AFTER FOV YOU CAN’T READ SHELL SIGNS ANYMORE ….in my state of mind I would have believed it and was getting more desperate. Instead I read FOR FOV TALK TO DR STALMANS which was better than a fairytale. I hope I make sense and again I hold nothing against you but don’t get each other crazy ….it’s already tuff for everybody and a lot of people do not post but only read posts/ Speak to you later people ;-)"

" Hi to everyone, Today I had my first check up with Dr Patel, (2 weeks post op). After drinking 2 cups of free coffee (had been to a wedding the night before) I was lead into Dr Patel’s consultation room. He asked how I was doing and then gave my eye a thorough check over. He informed me my lens was crystal clear and showed no signs of cataract formation. He also told me not to break out the champagne just yet, as an FOV patient is still in a danger period for up read more… to 3 months after the op with retinal detachment. He did tell me however that this is extremely unlikely, especially in a case where no gas bubble is needed. He confirmed that it would be fine to partake in whatever activities I want to now as strenuous exercise won’t influence the likelihood of a retinal detachment. I am looking forward to going for a fat mountain bike ride tomorrow! Under the doctor’s orders I am now only taking one eye drop a day. I have come off the pupil dilating drops and anti-biotic drops and just have to take the anti-inflammatory at a reduced rate of one drop twice a day. I was told my pupil should go back to a normal size in 4 to 5 days time which will greatly improve my vision. That said, I did an eye test and my vision is back to 20/20. So there it is. I feel glad this is over for now and that I went ahead with the operation. My op was a perfect result and I have had an easy and smooth recovery. My eye is still quite red but nothing which would give anyone nightmares after looking at it! Thanks to those of you who have supported me and a special thanks to those who had the operation before me and posted their experiences. I remember when I first came to this site, a very depressed person who thought there was no cure. It was when I read Sim’s account of his operation and how it had been successful that I realised there was hope. If floaters are ruining your life I would rec commend going for the operation as it is the only way to get back to how your life once was before you got them. Put the risks in to perspective. If you’re always on this website you obviously aren’t happy and for me personally, that’s no way to live my life. Cheers, Paul"
