    Cataract Surgery gone Bad

    It's been 5 months since my surgery. The first month went pretty well while I was taking the antibiotic eye drops. Then, everything went to hell. My eyes water almost constantly. They are very puffy and red. I am so sensitive to light, I can hardly stand to go to a concert, movie or play. Sometimes driving, especially at night, can be almost impossible. I can hardly hold my eyes open because I feel like my pupils have been dilated. The doctor has prescribed Doxycycline antibiotic which has done no good. He says "Use warm compresses and eyelid pads" which have done no good. He says "The eyeballs are fine, but the eyelids are infected". Any ideas out there?
