I had IOL transplants a couple of years ago. Now I am having a problem which is a bit difficult to describe. It is something akin to double vision especially when driving. I'm ok (other than depth perception) closing either eye, but with both open, it is like they are not working together, as I said, something like double vision. Not blurred vision .
The ophthalmologist that did the surgery has told me repeatedly I have dry eyes, and today again said that is a possible cause. I accept that - lubricant helps a little. But he also said I need this laser treatment for "dirty" capsules and in both eyes, and very quickly showed me the "dirty" part on the equipment monitor. Now "dirty" could have been a poor translation for "cloudy". English is not his native language but it did not look cloudy or dirty to me in the second or two I looked at it. My bad - I should have spent more time on that but ya'll know what it is like in the office. When pressed how sure he was, he said 80%. I have not come across anything that suggests this procedure for this problem, only for blurred vision, so I am asking here.
I'm a bit suspicious because this is a for-profit hospital in Thailand (where I live) and it is somewhat notorious for let's say, maximizing that profit whenever possible. Informed opinions would be much appreciated. Also of course from anyone else that has experienced this specific problem.
