Hi.. i had lens replacement surgery 2 years ago in Thailand and am still experiencing some major problems. I am originally from the UK but have lived in Thailand for the past 29 years. I am now 49 years old and had the surgery May 2017. My eye sight was always quite good but started to get worse as i turned 40 years of age. Anyway i decided to look in to surgery as my short vision was bad and i needed glasses for reading. I did my homework on the best eye surgeons in Thailand and booked the operation with a doctor that was regarded among the best in Thailand. I paid top dollar for the operation and was assured that all was going to be fine. The doctor operated on both eyes on the same day which, i have since found out is not common practice. I was put to sleep for the op as i was quite nervous about them poking around in my eyes whilst being conscious. As soon as i woke it didn't seem correct. It took a whole night sleep for me to awake and to be able to open my eyes and try to focus. I had my 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 month, 6 month and 1 year check up's, and some other check up's in between and at every appointment i voiced my concerns that the problems i disgusted at every appointment were not clearing up. I decided to get a second opinion from the best eye hospital in Bangkok to be told that they could not find anything wrong with my eyes and the operation looked perfectly normal. Another few months passed and the problems persisted, i then decided to fly back to the UK and had an appointment with a doctor at Moorfields. Again i was told that they could see nothing wrong with my eyes. Before i had my appointment at Moorefields i made a list of the, sometimes overpowering sensations i was having in my eyes.
Feels like there is an eyelash stuck in my eye for days on end which in turn gives me a headache for days on end.
The eye sometimes feels sticky when i blink
A cold stinging sensation at the tear duct
Muscle spasms around the eye
All of this leaves me, constantly with tired eyes.
I'm sorry to go on but here i sit again with a headache, blurred vision and feeling depressed. Is there anyone that has experienced this amount of irritation for this long after lens replacement surgery.
