Am I able to travel after macular hole surgery?

You must not fly or travel to high altitude on land while the gas bubble is still in your eye (up to 12 weeks after surgery).

If you ignore this, the bubble will expand at altitude, causing very high pressure inside your eye. This willresult in severe pain and permanent loss of vision.
