    Hazy vision in one eye that comes and cataract surgery

    I had cataract surgery about 3 years ago.....and now I'm having issues with my left eye. I'm not sure if this problem I'm having is connected to the cataract surgery. I have hazy, or cloudy, vision in my left eye. It's not every day, however when it occurs, it starts in the middle of the day and lasts all day until the next morning. It seems to clear up during the night when I'm sleeping. When I'm experiencing the hazy starts out partially hazy, but within a few....

    Cataract Surgery

    I have been reading these poor people's post after surgery. How much did you folks research your surgeon and how much did you research prior to the surgery? I am sorry you are having problems. This is your vision folks. I have had both eyes done one for the interior lense on the left eye in 2010 without anesthesia a local only and watched the procedure. Then in 2012 I had lense done on my right eye with a twilight anesthesia. I will never have it done that way and it was done after I specifically....

    Problems with cataract surgery

    I searched on cataracts and found a couple of very long threads, but I'm not up for reading them right now--my eye hurts too much. So I hope no one minds if I start a new thread? I may be having a bad experience, even though everyone told me it wasn't painful or a big deal. I had cataracts in both eyes--small ones, the doctor said. So I had the left one done a few weeks ago. They put me under. And it hurt! The next day when I went in, he said one of the stitches came out, and one was loose....

    Visual acuity seems to switch between eyes

    I'm 72 years old. I noticed a decline in visual acuity. Visited the Ophthalmologist. Appeared the decline was in the L eye due to cataracts. I have scheduled surgery for that L eye. Now, I notice that if I cover first the L then the R eye, I see better out of the Left! I'm sure that in the exam, the L eye was the weaker eye. I have no idea what's going on. Any insights?

    Unknown Particles in Eye

    I had shingles and viral meningitis 1 1/2 yrs ago. The shingles attacked the 5th and 6th cranial nerves and it left me blind in my right eye. I have been on eye drops, eye gels, and antiviral meds. For about 2-3 months I have noticed particles on my cheek just below my eye and few times from the eye(usually on the eyelids).
