Post-op after Laser treatment for Maculopahy is pretty fast: patients fully recover during the first 24 hours. In order to notice improvements, it is necessary to wait for a longer time span that may vary from a few weeks to a few months (1-3).
Intravitreal injections (Avastin, Lucentis, Eylea, Ozurdex, Iluvien etc.) for treating exudative maculopathy, can cause light discomfort, such has the feeling of having a little bit of sand in the eye: this can last for about 12 hours. It is necessary to wait for about 3-4 weeks to notice vision improvements.
Vision recovery after Vitrectomy, like in case of macula Pucker or macula Hole, happens a few months after surgery: this timespan lenght depends on the disease’s lenght itself.
In case of surgeries that used intraocular lenses such as IolAMD to cure dry and wet maculopathy, patients usually experience the feeling of having a little bit of sand in the eye for about 5-8 hours after surgery: everything is going to be back to normal from the day after.
Usually both eyes should be operated to achieve the maximum improvement.
It is also best to wait for about a month before patient can experience surgery results.
The most serious complication after maculopathy therapy with intravitreal injections, in infection.
This complication, even though rare, can be pretty serious: this is why it is absolutely mandatory to follow post-op instruction with great attention and avoiding dirty enviroments for the first 7 days after surgery.
In case of red or irritated eye, immediately contact your ophthalmologist.

Problem: Macular degeneration, MaculopathySolution: Vitrectomy
After having consulted several doctors, last year I turned to Dr. Badalà because I felt a discomfort to the eye. At first sight Dr. Badalà realized that there was something wrong in my right eye and, after a thorough e... Keep on reading this reviewxamination and an OCT, he confirmed the presence of a hole in the retina (which no other doctor had seen before) and he suggested me a vitrectomy.
After consulting other doctors who, despite having confirmed the diagnosis, suggested me to wait, I decided to entrust Dr. Badalà, because he inspired me with confidence during the visit.
I had a vitrectomy under local anesthesia about five months ago. The surgery was good and my eyesight has improved and I no longer see distorted images.
The thing that struck me most is that at first I was so used to don’t see well that I didn’t realize it, so much so that I had turned to Dr. Badalà just for a burning sensation to the eye. Thanks to the professionalism and accuracy of Dr. Badalà today I realize I see much better.
