What kind of eye surgery do you need to have? Don't be afraid that it will bring on fibro, and not all the symptoms or conditions we might have are caused by fibro. It is possible to get conditions and other illnesses that have nothing to do with fibro and will not make it flare up.

I am only wondering about your eye condition as I am going to have eye surgery soon as well. My condition is called a macular pucker, which is scar tissue that has formed on the eye’s macula, located in the center of the light-sensitive tissue called the retina. The macula provides the sharp, central vision we need for reading, driving, and seeing fine detail. A macular pucker can cause blurred and distorted central vision.

Macular pucker is also known as epiretinal membrane, preretinal membrane, cellophane maculopathy, retina wrinkle, surface wrinkling retinopathy, premacular fibrosis, and internal limiting membrane disease
