41 and diagnosed with posterior sub capsular cataract in both eyes. I have one parent who had cataract surgery in the 40s.
The vision in only the left eye is blurred. The prescription can be altered to imrpove clarity but cannot be altered enough to be 20/20 but the haziness and shadow go away.
My successful 20/20 test on the left eye was on 3/31 this year. I have never had my eyes dilated before so have never known if there has been a cataract in there.
1. Are these kind of contacts reparable or does the capsule that holds the lens gets damaged?
2. Should I try to ride this out as much as I can?
3. My parent did have the retina detach after YAG, 7 years after the catarcat surgery. Can retina detachment be repaired if it is cause by YAG?
4. Is is correct, that me under 50 have higher risk of retina detachment?
My appointment with surgeon is next week so he may have answers to these questions. Until then I am losing my mind and seeking thoughts.
