If you fall into the 5-10% who develop another retinal hole or develop scar tissue, you will need to have more operations. When a retina is detached, the eye naturally tries to heal the damage. Instead of being helpful, this healing process leads to scar tissue forming inside the eye and the retina contracting. Your doctor might refer to this as ‘proliferative vitretinopanthy’ or PVR for short. PVR is associated with poorer vision and may cause the retina to become detached again after successful surgery to reattach it.
