Question:
What is the success rate of peeling a pre-retinal membrane over the macula causing 20/100 vision?  

Answer:
Over 80 percent of the time, people notice visual improvement after membrane peeling. However, the vision usually does not come back to normal. A realistic goal in an eye with 20/100 is to double the vision to 20/50.
