I had my cataracts removed 3 years ago, then later I had to have lazer treatment for blurring - all successful [u]according to the surgeon[/u]!
I was promised my vision would be perfect and that I would be able to throw away my glasses (I was myopic but could read) however I have been left needing glasses for both distance and close work, and very dry eyes. I use eyedrops almost every 2 hours and my eyes still feel sore and irritated. Bright sunshine and car headlights are also a problem. I can't enjoy days out or going on holiday, I have had to stop attending hydrotherapy for arthritis because of the clorine (even when wearing goggles). Life is not worth living.
I am fed up and depressed, I cannot read for more than 10 minutes or so, and I wear sun glasses when using the computer - so I don't use it much any more. It has totally ruined my enjoyment of life, the experts insist the ops were 100% successful and expertly carried out and thats its very common to have dry eyes afterwards, - just to carry on using the eye drops - thank you, goodbye.
Is there nothing I can do, is this for the rest of ly life? I am so depressed I can't wait to die.
