LASIK surgery some 25 years ago -- cataracts recently developed in both eyes. Can't obtain LASIK records (lost by hospital). Had cataract surgery on right eye - long distance lens. Great vision for 5 days, then drastically deteriorated, pain, double vision, watery discharge,feeling that something in the eye, floaters, now short sighted in this eye, vision worse than before surgery. What is so frustrating is that the vision seems to vary during the day. Can look at an object using only that eye and it will be in focus, a few minutes later when I look again it will be blurred. Am seeing consultant again in a few weeks but he maintains as correct measurements as possible of eye pre surgery were taken, can't expect perfect result because of prior LASIK surgery. But,having had a long sighted lens inserted I certainly didn't expect to end up shortsighted and with worse vision than prior to surgery.
He has proposed piggybacking another lens on top of the existing lens to see if this improves vision and/ or laser treatment to break up floaters which he says are causing distortion of vision and due to dry eyes!. I'm not convinced and concerned piggybacking another lens will make feeling of something in eye worse.
I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who's had a similar experience and/ or received further treatment to address similar sight problems.
