1. Given the advancements in cataract surgery, we need to speak to the reduced risk of retinal detachment following this surgery. The newest laser surgery treatment does not increase the risk of possible retinal detachment as the older scalpel methods. I would like to see the listings address this issues.

2. I think we should evaluate post vitrectomy and laser surgeries based on the their success. That is to say; does the vitreous stay attached and intact. I would think that a post-operative evaluation period of one to three months would be sufficient for measuring acuities and visual fields as the results are usually seen within a couple of days post surgery. Most complications of vitreous or retinal repair will take place within three months of the initial surgical treatment.
