    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....

    Problems with eye sight from Low Blood Pressure?

    I’m 4 month post op for a VSG and have low BP since before the surgery. I was told that it is common post surgery to develop low BP which has been the case. I have had increased bouts of dizziness, light headedness and changes in my vision. Including silver flashes across both eyes, blind spots and also fuzziness in the peripheral vision of my right eye coupled with a headache. I am also getting numbness in my right thumb and forefinger. Has anyone experienced this or have any idea what it might....

    Peripheral Neuralgia, 6th Nerve Palsey

    Oct. 2015 I got shingles. It got into my right eye and damaged my 5th and 6th cranial nerves resulting in 6th nerve palsey and leaving me blind in my right eye. I can see light but can't make out objects enough to know what they are. My eye is very sensitive to light and I have to wear sunglasses when I go out. I also have peripheral neuralgia. I have a lot of pain with it. It feels like shock waves. My cornea consultant had my eye sewn almost half shut. The pain usually starts in the lower middle....

    Alternating Estropia? Causes and Treatments?

    I have had serious vision issues since the day I was born. I have had glasses ever since I was able to communicate with an eye doctor. I have had many issues such as basic near-sightedness, astigmatisms, nystagmus, a lazy eye. All of it. When I was about 5 years old, I had to occasionally wear an eye-patch to correct a lazy eye condition, so having crossed eyes are not foreign to me. For most of my life, this issue has not come up until two years ago (sophomore/junior year of high school). One of....

    Eye Surgery

    About 8 years ago, a friend received a free eye exam via a charity organization. The doctor indicated that the optic nerve was pale and there was something behind the eye and that MRIs of the brain and orbit wwo was required because brain tumor, stroke, etc. were likely. MRIs at that time were out of range; however, a 2nd doctor recommended blood tests to rule out Giant Cell Arteritis which was done and proved negative. Current day: Friend now has insurance. One eye is blind. The other apparently....

    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.
