Is It Normal To Have Double Vision After A Lasik Consultation
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 moreSee 3 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Hi, I have done my lasik surgery 3 weeks before but still see starbust and glare and halos. Is it normal? Is this problem correct after some time?
It depends: Patients that have focal laser or panretinal photocoagulation can develop swelling in the central part of their vision causing blurred vision.

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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Vitrectomy Surgery: Vitrectomy surgery is the most common treatment for macular holes and provides the best chance for regaining lost vision and helping with visual distortion. The procedure involves removing the vitreous gel, peeling membranes off the retina and adding a temporary gas bubble. Cataract, retinal detachment, and lack of closure are possible complications. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Patients commonly describe their eyes as feeling tired for the first few weeks after cataract surgery. This can be due to increased dryness in the postoperative period, a normal amount of postoperative inflammation, and mild external irritation from the eyedrops used after surgery. This symptom usually improves over the weeks following surgery. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Probably: If temporary and does not recur, double vision in one eye is usually due to a tear film issue that is corrected with blinking or artificial tears. If only one eye but more constant, then could be astigmatism, cataract, epiretinal membrane, or some other monocular cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ophthalmologist suspects pink eye. Is it normal to have blurry vision in the infected eye? How long will it last? A little concerned.
Healing: In prk, the skin covering the cornea is removed and allowed to regrow by itself. As the skin is regrowing, the vision will be blurry. After a few days, the skin is healed and the vision will improve. Vision after prk will continue to improve for several weeks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
