Time frame post surgery to stability

This is a follow up to the proposed question about being evaluated post surgically - e.g., what is the timeframe until evaluation can be performed to determine outcome.

 

Answer: It depends on the procedure. For vitrectomy and retinal surgeries (with no additional surgery planned, including secondary cataract extraction), at 9-12 most, impairment finding including VA are typically maximized and function often stabilized. With addition of rehabilitation, visual function would be expected to improve further.
