    Are there any complications in undergoing cataract surgery?

    Hi! I am very sorry to say that my husband is an alcohol addict. He drinks a lot and verbally abuses me. I am worried he would spoil his life because of his excessive drinking. I tried many ways to stop his drinking. But he is not able to stop his drinking habit. These days, he is troubled with some vision problem. He complained to me that he is experiencing blurred vision and has sensitivity towards light and glare. He also told me that he sees "halos" around lights. I took him to a nearby....

    Light Therapy and Eye Conditions

    Hello. I have a light therapy box that I use to treat depression. It has a UV filter that blocks 99.3 percent of UV light. Do you think that it could cause cataracts or a serious eye condition if I use it for many years? Thank you.

    Sudden vision change after blow

    I have had cataract surgery, followed by retinal detachments in both eyes. More than a month ago I received a blow to my eye, with severe blurred vision. When I move the eye it is like looking through wiggling jello. My eye doctor says there is no detachment but that the eyeball has changed shape. He wants to correct it with glasses, but I am wondering if he could really see a break in the vitreous. The specialist who did the surgery for the retinal detachment is very out of town, but I am debating....

    Glaucomo and receding eyelid in one eye

    In Oct 2017, after visiting my opthamolgist because of an unusual feeling in my left eye, I was diagnosed with dry eye and prescribed Restasis. Within 2 days of Restaisis my left eye opened very wide. My opthamologist erroneously suggested a neurological problem. I went to Emory University Hospital Opthamology for a second opinion and learned I have glaucoma in my left eye only, but they could not explain the receding eyelid, since my blood thyroid level is normal. Over the past 5 months, at Emory....

    Is there any chance of developing cataract even after a cataract surgery?

    Hi, I am a native of Canada. I am 24 years old. I was experiencing severe headache for days. And I even had water coming from my left eye. I was not able to use my mobile and computer for a long time and I was not able to read books clearly. Everything seems to be blurry. I was recently diagnosed during a routine checkup as having a cataract in my left eye. I am worried about the development of an early cataract. The doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. But I don't like wearing eyeglasses. So....

    Big vision change...what does it mean?

    There's a few boards I could have posted this on, but this one seems to make the most sense. I think I just feel like talking and getting it out. If anyone would like to respond, though, it would be most appreciated! Four years ago, I had a retinal detachment in my left eye that was successfully treated through surgery. Thing were going along fine, eye-wise, until last year when my optometrist diagnosed me with high eye pressure, which is a risk factor for glaucoma (which runs a bit on my mom's....

    Had both my eyes done in July and Aug 2017. At my one week visit Dr told me was doing super.

Next day visit my right looked....

    It’s a long story. You got time? I pray you do. August 2017, I tripped while hiking with my dogs Nibbler and Buddy at a local off leash county park. I was knocked out. Came to covered in blood and dirt. Pups panting hard. No one around to help. I made it home and laid down. I know, I know don’t lecture me. My husband came home six hours later and found me unresponsive. Emergency room fixes everything, right? Not so much. The “doctor” refused me an MRI or a CAT scan. He did not check my eyes. He sent....
