Is it normal to have double vision even after having eye muscle surgery?

Is it normal to have double vision even after having eye muscle surgery?

Depends: Right after surgery or has it been awhile? If eye muscle surgery was supposed to correct it but did not, then could be under/over-corrected, or could have alignment issues in more than 1 direction that was only partially treated, or other causes. ...Read more

Is it normal after cataract surgery to have a very red eye?

Is it normal after cataract surgery to have a very red eye?

Possibly: Some redness is to be expected from the eye drops used and local irritation of the surgery and inflammation. Sometimes bruising over the white part of the eye can appear very red or purple. The seriousness of redness after the surgery largely depends on the date from surgery, the visual acuity, and pain or discharge. Certainly a phone call is warranted to the eye surgeon to address it. ...Read more

After a lazy eye surgery, is it normal for the eye to be a little inward?

Possibly: It is certainly possible that your eyes remain slightly misaligned after strabismus surgery. It depends on how your eyes have developed as well as any residual misalignment that occurs.

Is it normal for the eye to still be a little inward after a lazy eye surgery?

Yes: It can be hard to get the alignment exact (tables to estimate the pd change based on mm movement of the muscle). Also if it's recent since surgery, there may still be some residual inflammation affecting alignment. Plus it may be incomitant so different in various gazes (hard to correct for every gaze). ...Read more

Is it normal for eye vision to worsen a few weeks after corneal transplant surgery?

Is it normal for eye vision to worsen a few weeks after corneal transplant surgery?

Yes: I see this most commonly in keratoconus grafts where initial swelling causes graft flattening. As the swelling goes down the graft steepens and becomes more myopic. Of course any transplant can have a change in refractive error and astigmatism as it heals. I would not worry about rejection this early but if there is any pain or increase in redness or light sensitivity i would see your surgeon now. ...Read more

It is possible that a person with glaucoma have lasik for vision correction?

It is possible that a person with glaucoma have lasik for vision correction?

Yes: Yes but you will need to be followed closely. Steroid eye drops are often used after lasik. Some people respond with increase in iop to these meds (usually transient). Finally, lasik will have no impact on glaucoma progression later in life, but it can cause eye pressure to register at a lower level (an artificial lowering). Again, close follow up will be needed with or without lasik. ...Read more

Is it normal to have a cataract on your eye when having a detached retina?

Is it normal to have a cataract on your eye when having a detached retina?

Perhaps: Some techniques used to repair a detached retina can lead to premature cataract. An example surgery is a pars plana vitrectomy where the jelly pulling on the retina (vitreous) is removed from inside the eye. While removing the vitreous may speed up cataract development, we accept this occurence as without an atrached retina, the eye does not see. Cataract surgery may be needed down the road. ...Read more
