I had a botched cataract surgery a few years ago on my left eye. This resulted in another surgery to remove the remnants, two RD's, and finally corrective surgery. The original iol was the wrong type and inserted crooked. In the fifth surgery by another doctor the correct iol was used and re-inserted correctly. However the results were not good. I had only degraded vision. I delayed surgery on my right eye as long as I could and finally decided to do the surgery on my right eye about three months ago. That surgery went well. My surgeon used an iol that gave me good near vision and it does. The doctor said he thought this would be best considering the condition of my left eye. I could see great up to about three feet and then everything would blur. After two months the doctor said I could get glasses. The prescription was -4.00 for both eyes. I got my glasses about two weeks ago and could see very good with them. I knew I would need to allow an adjustment period but everything seemed great the first week. In the second week I started getting nasty headaches especially over my left eye. I would wake up feeling good and energetic and about three hours later was exhausted and had to lay down. These symptoms progressed and were getting worse through the week.
Yesterday I took the glasses off and felt somewhat better but that left me with my limited vision. Amazingly my vision seems better than before the glasses. Today I woke, felt good, went grocery shopping, and on the way home decided to retry my new glasses. Within minutes I felt off balance, like my eye was pulling to the side, and nauseous. I removed the glasses and slowly I am feeling better. Tomorrow I will call my eye surgeon. Yesterday I took my glasses to where I had them made and they checked the glasses and told me they were as my prescription called for.
The only explanation I can think of is my eyes were not finished adjusting and now I may need a different prescription. Also, I found my vision is now better, not good, than the day I got the glasses. Commends appreciated, thanks.
