  • My surgery experience

    I'm the one who wrote for info since I had (still have) the thin retinas, lattice degeneration and holes, astigmatism, and large eyeballs--a perfect storm of problems for any surgeon to face. My lens exchange was just this last Friday. While many others will disagree, I chose to have both eyes...

  • Monovision cataract surgery - results?

    If you’ve had cataract surgery with monovision and monofocal lenses, what were your results like?   **What diopters did each eye wind up at?  (if you know) **And when do you need to use glasses?  Smart phone – computer – small vs. large print  – driving?  Thank you.

  • Acceptable Symfony result?

    I had Symfony IOL's implanted 4 months ago.  In the marketing literature, they show people using their smartphones and lead a person to expect near vision results to match that. Numbers-wise they advertise 20/25 or better through 26 inches. In my one eye which was -6.0 with .-0.75 astigmatism...

  • just had cataract procedure

    Cataracts typically form in ones forties but are not usually significant. Its not until ones sixties that they may begin to cause vision problems. But, with a history of eye complications, it was of no surprise that I began to form cataracts earlier than most. At the age of 56, with a large cataract...

  • Blurry patch after yag capsulotomy

    Hi all Anyone out there had a YAG capsulotomy resulting in intermittent blurriness? The vision is certainly improved from pre-laser when the blurriness is less evident.

  • I had hoped to see betterbthan before

    I am about 3 week’s post op on my 2nd eye ( monovision, same as my contacts had been).  I didn’t have cloudiness before surgery- they just could no longer correct me better than 20/40.  I did measure 20/32 at my 1 week post op visit but it seems to me I see no better than before the surgery....

  • Blurred vision months after cataract surgery

    I am devastated. I had cataract surgery on 9/11/15, and around December I started to have blurred vision. It is now June 1, 2016, and it starts every time I look at my phone, computer, or even read a magazine. I got computer glasses, and they enlarge the words, but when I put my regular glasses on everything...

  • Pilocarpine drops or Suture the pupil

    I have larger than normal pupils (6-7 mm) in one eye. Because of this, my vision is not as sharp as it should be. For diagnostic and informative reasons, my doctor prescribed me low dose oral Pilocarpine 1%, twice a day to see if they would induce miosis (shrink/constrict the pupil). If it does, then...

  • Close reading

    I was wondering if anybody else has had the same problems with their reading close up without some kind of readers.  I had the right eye done about 6 weeks ago and my left eye about 3 weeks ago but my close up is still bad.
