I am a 35 year old female who has a family history of cataracts on both sides of family at a young age. I had cataract surgery in June and July of 2015 on both eyes and had a monofocal lens implanted in both eyes. I never really had the feeling that my vision was better after either of these surgeries. The doctor continued to dismiss my concerns and suggested the laser YAG surgery for my left eye. I delayed this because I as so unhappy and was driving with halos at night after the surgeries. In April of 2016, I moved forward with the YAG surgery hoping this as the answer but this made everything worse. I can no longer drive at night due to starburst and and am left struggling to get home before the sun goes down every night from work I have been to four other eye doctors in my area and all of their diagnosis disagree. The last Doctor I saw today sent me for a $200 hard contact trial to rule out it being the astigmatism causing the problem but sadly I can't afford this. She also discuss eye drops to constrict my pupil but these all have their own risk. She will not let me move forward without the contact trial first which I have told her that contacts had never work well with me in the past due my constant allergies. So I am left fighting like so many other for answers that seems no likely to come with out divine intervention. So I pray every night for me and so many others out there like me for answers.
