Hello
What condition was treated?
Hole in the retina?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The condition was retinal tears. I had the operation on the 27th of December. The gas bubble in my eye disappeared on the 5th of March. I am due to fly from the Isle of Man to Gatwick at the weekend. I had a check up at St. Pauls eye hospital in Liverpool on the 24th of February but at that time I still had the bubble.

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
I see no reason that you can not fly.
However, you must base this on your last exam and your surgeons opinion, not on the internet.
Generally 3 months is a good rule of thumb.
By the way , it is already the 10th of march.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
