The length and width of the streak is dependent on the brightness and width of the light source -- in only the right eye. Looking at a bright light bulb will provide a streak crossing most of my visual field (always at the same roughly 45-degree angle from upper right to lower left) exactly the width of the light bulb. The streak is perfectly straight and seems to fade away at the far ends. Opthalmologist just shrugs. Optometrist suggested perhaps I'm seeing the edge of the implanted lens, but wouldn't that be curved? I don't know the brand of the IOL, but it was toric with heavy astigmatism correction.
Prescription before surgery:
R +1.50 -3.25 x100
L +4.50 -3.75 x077
R 0.25 -0.75 145
L 0 -0.5 85
Different doctors may account for the difference in angle.
What might be causing these streaks and is it possible to get rid of them?
