Hello Tim,

thanks for your unpayable job
I´ve thank you many times your help, even for all Ophthalm. I share your quality Medical relationship,
Today, I´ve thought that I´d be proud to have a collaboration with you, in the field you want to.
Sure my humor sense could be useful.
Before Opht, I was surgeon, and with all my very ill patients, a smile was appreciated,
Warm regards

Since July, 2009 I’ve had intermittent occurrences of what appears as neon lights or a kaleidoscope effect out of my left eye region.I had my retina checked, an MRI, and brain scan done; no findings of anything.

I suddenly and dramatically came down w/ severe shoulder,upper arm and hip inflammation in March, 2011.Rheumatologist diagnsed: PMR.I have been able to function and reduce inflammation dramatically w/ prednisone.

Do you have any insight on the symptoms that I am experiencing out of my left eye region? Sometimes it appears as though a mirror is melting and moving.

I’ve had Asteroid Hyalosis for 35 years, now in both eyes. It’s very annoying. Vitrectomy remains the only definitive treatment. I know the risks, but the rate of complications is hard to come by. What are the statistics for each potential complication following vitrectomy for asteroid hyalosis? P.

TIMROOT: Peter, the risk is fairly high. I would estimate about 10-15% for something happening. If you haven’t had cataract surgery yet, retinal surgery will make your cataract worse as well. For some “numbers” here is an interesting link to a research paper on this.
