    Retinal Detachments

    Hello, my name is Peter, I am 22, and I've had a retinal detachment for about 6 years now. I've had 6 surgeries (plus one cataract) to fix my detachment. But unfortunately they failed. I lost vision in my right eye, and my first doctor told me that the retina is attached, but because I had so many surgeries, the scar tissues won't permit me to see. But recently, another doctor told me that the eye is completely detached (which explains why I can't see). He told me that I shouldn't....

    Post-cataract surgery

    I noticed shimmery edge glare following cataract surgery eight day ago and the condition has not yet approved. How long does it usually take to clear up? Should I simply continue with the drops and wait... or is this something to discuss with my surgeon before he does the other eye in five weeks time?

    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....

    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.

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.

    Cataract surgery/Symfony - poor near vision

    Had cataract surgery on left eye four weeks ago, right eye one week ago. My near vision (iPhone, watch, etc.) is very bad, cannot see anything without 1.5 reading glasses. Far vision (computer and beyond) is pretty good, no major complaints. Getting a lot of 'flairing' which is very distracting but livable. I am quite disturbed with my near vision - have to put on and take off reading glasses to see anything, meaning I have to do it many times per hour. Cannot see food on a plate in front....
