Monofocal lens replacement/pure distance lens

Posted , 3 users are following.

I had lens replacement of my right eye sept 15th,2016. One week into it, I developed burred vision, flickering to the right of my eye. I called right away. To make the long version short, after trying extra drops and seeing the surgeon 2 additional times aside from my followup appts(3 weeks after noticing the haze)...he finally understood i wasn't seeing halos...i had a sheer-like curtain behind my lens. i get referred to a retinal specialist ending up with antibiotic injections to my eye. ($4,000) More drops and more drops.....I'm now one month after my injections and i still have flickering to the right side of my eye. I see many complain about this but never hear of a solution. Anyone??

    IHi Kris, I am in the UK. I had a lens replacement in 1992 & had similar problems, the Ophthalmologist used a laser on the 'film' behind my lens &, he told me he made tiny holes in it.  I haven't had a problem since.

      I'm so sorry to hear that....My vision in that eye before surgery was 20/225. It's currently 20/30 but still have the haze and flickering. I'm sick of putting drops in and they are by no means cheap. I'll stay in touch with you if theres something that can be done over the course of the next 4 months or so. I had it done with Dr. Alexander; he had amazing reviews, so i guess i was one of the unlucky ones. Can i ask what ND stands for??
