    after cataract surgery issues

    back in january 17 i had right eye done. nothing really wrong with my eye other than glasses but i was getting ready to retire and the optician told me i had stage 5 cataracts. well not knowing what that was i went to opthamologist and he talked me and the wife into cataract surgery. now she need drops 2 times a day for something that she never had before, i need them in the right eye for something i never needed them before. right eye is all i had. so not the issue! the other day out of the blue i had what looked like something in my vision, kind of like you used to see in movies in the lense area. well when i blinked it moved around and now that is not there, but now when i move my eye i see flashes around the right side of the vision area and i now see something moving around in my eye that if i hold steady falls down, not spots but looks like a veil. and now i have a smll amount of pain in my eye, not sharp like a cut but dull all over. so nayone have this after cataract surgery?

        You owe it to yourself to contact the surgeon who removed your cataract, or choose another specialist, and be rechecked without delay.
        “well not knowing what that was”........dangerous words for people of retirement age. If you don’t know why someone is going to do surgery on YOUR BODY, find out why!
        Do your research, ask questions, if you don’t get the information you need, request a second opinion.
        I had nearly miraculous eye surgeries done in my late 60’s, including cataract removal, but if I had been better informed, I would have had the order of my surgeries reversed.
        LESSON LEARNED.
        Once again, PLEASE contact your eye physician ASAP, and PLEASE inform yourself about what’s happening to YOUR body!

        did go back to the same eye surgeon but to be honest i believe he gave me a story. he told me the viscous fluid was pulling away from the retina and causing the veil or cloudy vision. now i'm no dummy but then not an eye surgeon but it seem to me that the viscous fluid should settle down because of gravity not just pull away vertically from the back of the eye. i told him i saw a filament in the corner of my eye and he said it was the retina. and the crescent moon shape i see or the right side of my vixion was from that pulling away of the retina. i'm not a believer of that, as that filament i saw moved around like blood in my eye and when i moved my eye it moved horizontally as i move my eye back and forth. and it moved vertically as i looked up and down. and it smeared as i moved my eye, just like blood might do. i still have that veil looking thing in my eye and it is worse that the cataract he removed. as the cataract in my left eye is worse than the right eye was and now the right eye is worse than the left eye. now for sure i will not get the left eye done until i just can see out of it anymore. bp.

    RE: after cataract surgery issues

    it has been about a week and everyday it has got better but i still have something in there that appears to look now like a huge floater. i still see a white corona type along the right side of my vision that looks like it did days after the surgery, at that time the dre. told me it was light coming around the side of the lense, so that is why i think the lens got loose and tore a vessel in that area. i still have what looks like a cloud over my eye that is worse that the original cataract. i know because my left eye had the same amount of cataract and now the right eye is works. this is after the surgery, so in my opinion 6 months after the surgery my right eye is worse now that before the surgery.

    now for sure i will not get the left eye done untill glasses will not help anymore
