Hi everyone. So great to read all about the experiences although not always good. I'm from the England and the only site I can find with reviews of the lens replacement surgery are mostly raving about how fantastic it is. Well my experience so far is not so.
I ll start by saying I'm a train driver. The reason I chosee to have surgery was to ensure my sight was kept at a constant level,as I was on the limit of what the railway allow for its drivers. So I would lose my job should my vision deteriorate any more.
I had choice of monofocal or multifocal. I opted for multifocal as I was told the low ad lense would be good for me correcting all vision both near and distance.
Well 4 weeks later....right eye great meets in facts exceeds railway standard, but left eye does not meet standard. I was told I'm reading one line lower than the minimum standard required. I'm assured it will be ok in time. Or if not that laser yag would be an option to rectify.
It's very worrying time as I'm now off work until this left eye improves. My question is will it? Very scared as iv paid a lot of money and I feel iv put myself out of much loved job. Am I panicking too soon?
I also find by evening my eyes go fuzzy round the edges not focus properly. I find I need go bed very early as what's point of staying up if can't see properly.
I now need to sit much closer to the TV than before. MY near vision is amazing but I feel everything else is very poor.
Has anyone had this yag laser? Was it sucessful? As I'm concerned about having more done. Look forward to any replys
