Macula Hole

After pointing out to the optomologist that I have macular degeneration they decided I have a hole in the Macula. It can be repaired by plugging the hole with a gas bubble and will have to keep my head down for two weeks. I will see the specialist Jan.15 to get the full scoop on the procedure. Has anyone had the repair procedure?

My father in law had it. Do EXACTLY what the doctor tells you. This could mean your sight completely coming back, or blindness. I don't want to scare you, but it can be very serious. Take care of it.
