    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....

    Walmart

    My daughter informs me that there is a difference between a prescription for eye glasses and one for contact lenses. Is Walmart the cheapest store to get a contact lens prescription? About what is their price? Thanks

    Sudden eye pain leading to worsening vision and numbness

    I was in class and experienced migraine level of pain in/around my right eye only. After the pain passed I couldn't see the board from 30ft way and had to move up to the front. My vision in my right eye slowly gets worse as time passes, this happens usually when I experience the same pain again or force my eye to focus on something more than a few seconds which causes that same pain. The pain usually ends with more floaters in my eye and worse vision. I also can not feel the air/wind on my eye....

    glaucoma

    Hi, I came back from the eye dr. after not going for 10 years. My eyesight is perfect 20/20 and actually has improved in 10 years (slightly). She said that I had some slight yellowing in my lenses that could develop into cataracts 5-10 years down the road. That is all good news. I am 61 years old. My concern is glaucoma. My pressures are good 17-18 which is where they were 10 years ago. Dr. said under 20 is where you want them to be. She then took a picture of each eye - a fundus photo I think it....

    Dog Eye Health

    Can anyone tell me what they know about glaucoma? Our family has a husky that has been closing his eye and is dealing with optic nerve pain. They are thinking about removing his eye. We are looking to a cannabis oil protocol for pain and inflammation.

    Severe Headaches after Surgery

    3 years ago I had bi-lateral cataracts and bi-lateral retinal detachment/tear. Over the last year I've had severe headaches particularly in the temples and I was just wondering if this is a common occurrence? The only relief I get sometimes is when I have my eyes closed which makes it feel like a weight has been lifter of my head.

    Eye trouble - goes away and then returns

    Hello, this past May, I was diagnosed with a corneal ulcer. I was treated with an antibiotic drop and steroid drop. Went back for an exam and all we good. A month later, my eyelid became inflamed and my eye red so I went back and was prescribed a steroid. It helped and all was well until about 3 months later- same symptoms. Prescribed steroid drops again. All was ok after that. Then 2-3 months later, same situation. It gets better for a while and then comes back. Starts with very sore upper eyelid....

    My doctor told me that I have cataracts. Now what?

Either one wont pay. if I look at tv without reading glasses, cant look at anything. Reading Glasses Is the my only vice I also take other meds, like Synthroid, Sertraline, Trazodone and klonipin by my psychiatrist. Reading about interactions. Sertraline can effect vision, and Trazodone. I have to take the synthroid, for life. But the....
