i felt something in my right eye on the inner corner of my eye. The optometrist told me it's block where the tears come out. She said it's been swollen but not infected. My eyes get red especially in the afternoon. It's been 3 months since the operation. My left eye heals quickly and i had the operation last Sept. 1,2017. Vision is clear no problem. Has anyone experience the same way. I am a resident of Australia.

    I had that, but my doc just put a tiny, tiny tube in the tear duct and it cleared up immediately.

      Good surgery corrected your issue. So all is well now? Just curious, was your surgery covered by insurance or did you pay out-of-pocket?

      Just curious. How much is it for one eye?

      I paid out-of-pocket too. I'm an American living in the Philippines. Medicare doesn't cover Americans living overseas.

      Wow that's cheap! That equates to $1,824 US dollars. I thought Australia would be more expensive than the Philippines because the cost of living is less here. Mine cost $2,158 US dollars for one eye including the anaesthesian ( & outpatient). My multifocal IOL cost $1,200 US dollars. What is your IOL? Mine is a German brand (made in the Netherlands) called "Oculentis Mplus X." Interesting that your total is cheaper than the Philippines.

      Mine is made in Australia by Alcon. I think mine is not multifocal. Am a private patient by i was operated in a government hospital on day surgery. How long you have your cataract surgery.

      I had mine done at a private hospital on an outpatient surgery. The opthamologist is famous in this province and he also has a clinic in Manila. He's about 55 therefore he has lots of experience. Normally he operates on 2-5 patients at once. More cost effective in hiring the surgery room/facilities. When I had mine done, there were 2 more patients behind me.

      The Oculentis Mplus X is a multifocal lens. It's not produced with the traditional rings. It's manufactured using a high tech injector (patented) that produces the different focal lengths within a single mold. Therefore it produces minimal glare and halos.

      Yes if yours is a monofocal, it'll be alot cheaper.

    Same problem with right eye. Burns, goes blurry. Doctors are so condescending and ignore issues. Tell me it is normal or just because I am old ---69.
