They put silicone oil in your eye during some retinal surgery. 

I remember reading awhile ago about @shortbreadlover 's retinal problems. I believe it was her.

i get it taken out on tuesday and a gasbubble will beput in and that will dissolve in 8 weeks.  then i will getback what visionthat i will have.  i am praying for 100 % but i don't know.  i will beso glad to getitout.  i am so tired of this oil and stumbling around.  with the oil in my eye , i have to fight  for everry step i take because it affects your balance.

 

 

the new dr said that he may have to put the oil back in dependin g on the scar tissiue and hoiw it looks but he feels he won't have to do so.  i am praying that i will get the gas bubble this time.  i am just waiting until tuesday

I also have silicone oil placed in my left eye 5 1/2 years ago. It is a challenge to live with every day. My vision is like looking through a layer of motor oil. Very little useful vision. I don't know if I will ever have it removed because fluid has started to leak under the retina.

I wish you the best for your surgery and hope you regain as much vision as possible!
