After Cataract Surgery Do Pupils React To Light
Depends: Cataract surgery involves the substitution of an artificial lens for the removed and cloudy natural lens. This causes the iris to recede backwards in the eye as the new lens is smaller. This creates a smaller pupil and that is the usual expectation. On your next visit with your cataract surgeon bring this up as perhaps there is some remedy or other cause in your case. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Generally not: Most cataract surgery is done without stitches in a manner that increased internal pressure in the eye, such as that caused by coughing and vomiting, will only tighten the closure. If you have consistent vomiting, that should be checked out by your family doctor but check with the cataract surgeon first to rule out an eye cause for the vomiting such as bleeding or high pressure within the eye. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

After dilation, eyes very blurred, but can see okay with glasses, when not dilated. Indicates cataract surgery? Is cataracts reversible?
No: Everyone's vision becomes blurred with dilation for examination. Cataracts are an clouding of the eye lens that can occur naturally with aging. They are not reversible. However, surgery to remove and insert an artificial lens is indicated only when vision loss affects your activities of daily living, e.g. driving, watching TV, reading the newspaper. The surgery is brief and almost painless. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Eyes used to alternate. Will they relearn how after strabismus surgery or will I have intractable diplopia? 4 months out-i'm 4-6 dp eso after exo surg.
Variable: Many factors influence how long dilating drops remain active after instilled. These include how "strong" a drop was used, how sensitive the patient is to the drop, color of the eyes (blue usually stay dilated longer), and other factors. Most dilating drops used for diagnostic purposes in the office wear off after 4-24 hours. Patients often are sensitive to light, and may have trouble reading. ...Read more
Cateract post op 6 days wanted iol for distance but vision 8" to 15 " clear 2' to infinity diffused blur wrong implant or not please avise?
IOL: It is not uncommon to have hazy vision, even worse before surgery, after a cataract surgery depending on the cataract density, phaco time, endothelial cell health. Did they do an intraoperative aberrometer? If yes, the implant choice is more precise. But seeing well for distance vs reading depends on: a healed cornea, stable tear film, normal macula & nerve. Please consult with me to review record ...Read more

Cataract surgery 8/3/2016 and my pupil is still a pinpoint. Indoors I see floaters and cloudiness or complete shadow. how long until this resolves?
Depends: This depends on the level of refractive error which was treated. Your uncorrected vision will likely be better than prior to surgery within 2-3 days (after the cornea has healed and the contact lens is removed) unless you had only a mild prescription before. The vision will then continue to clear over the next few weeks as corneal inflammation subsides with steroid use. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Could you tell me if my eyes are light sensitive, will the red laser used during lasik be hard to stare at?
Probably not: The lights from the microscope are sometimes bright so that the surgeon can see what he/she is doing during the procedure. Fortunately, during the part when you have to carefully look at the red fixation target, the other lights are usually turned way down low to make it easier for you to see and fixate on the red target. You should be fine! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Red eyes: After surgery is quite common. The blood vessels in the area tend to dilate to help with healing. There's really no way to get rid of these blood vessels because if you try to remove them, they will be replaced by other ones. Over a long period of time, they may become less prominent. ...Read more
