I have foggy vision in my right eye but already had cataract surgery in it 2 years ago. Worse in bright light. What would cause this?

Secondary cataract: You likely have a very common condition commonly referred to as a secondary cataract. The technical term is posterior capsular opacification, which describes a small layer of cells that have formed a membrane behind your lens implant. The good news is that this can be fixed with a painless outpatient surge rival procedure called a yag capsulotomy. It is covered by all insurances if necessary. ...Read more

I have astigmatism but do you think they could do surgery on my right eye and make at have similar vision to my left?

Astigmatism: And other refractive errors (like nearsightedness and farsightedness) can be corrected with lasik or other types of refractive surgery. This will take care of any glasses need you have for distance vision but you will still need to wear reading glasses as you get older. This is due to presbyopia, or age-related reading difficulty. ...Read more

Cataract surgery 7 yrs ago. Some kind of dark object is blocking right eye, it moves around within right eye only and cutting my vision.

Cataract surgery 7 yrs ago. Some kind of dark object is blocking  right eye, it moves around within right eye only and cutting my vision.

Blurry vision: After cataract surgery may be caused by a clouding of the lens capsule which is left in place during your surgery. It may also be due to an opacity that can develop in the vitreous or some type of retinal problem. You should be evaluated by your ophthalmologist to determine the cause of your symptoms and if there is anything that can be done to help them. ...Read more

Deteriorating vision w panuveitis & cataract in right eye.19, studying & am finding it tough to cope.Can cataract surgery only be done once?W orzudex?

Can be done more: than once, but in an eye that is already internally inflamed, even doing one cataract surgery has it's risks, as well as post-op cataract recovery time. Must reduce stress levels, and also have a full work up done by your internist to look at other causes of system inflammation and rule that out too. Want the eye as quiet as possible. ...Read more

I had an right eye surgery due to piantball. Therefore now I have a blurred vision, will i get my vision back as its been 2 weeks after the surgery.?

Maybe: It really depends on the extent of the damage and the type of surgery you had. Any damage to cornea and lens of your eye potentially could return with surgery and healing (again depending on the extent of the damage), however damage to the retina carries far worse prognosis. Your eye doctor would be able to give a better answer. ...Read more

After 2 Surgeries: The likelihood that you will regain meaningful vision after two surgeries and from a traumatic injury like this is small. It is impossible to define exactly what your visual potential may be, especially without an exam. But the nature of your initial injury probably dictated what the final outcome would be the instant it occurred. ...Read more

Thanks for your answer Sir,For my lazy right eye  i really afraid of surgery, do u have any solution that no need to surgery ?

Depends on amount: By lazy eye, I am assuming that one eye is not aligned with the other. Sometimes lazy eye means that it doesnt "see" as well. It the alignment amount is small enough, prism glasses can be used. Otherwise, realigning the muscles is the only other option. This is called strabismus surgery. Sometimes it is cosmetic, but other times it's done to eliminate any double vision you might have. Good luck. ...Read more

What do you suggest if I have done prk surgery and its been around 5 weeks. My euesight was around -3 in left and -2.25 in right eye?

Healing time: Vision can take up to 3 months for full healing after PRK. Be sure to use artificial tears frequently, we recommend 4x's daily for first 3 months. See your eye surgeon for a follow-up to confirm that there is no "haze" that is contributing to less than optimal vision. ...Read more

I have an epiretinal membrane in my right eye. Will it get worse if I don't have surgery?

Vitrectomy: If the symptoms are severe enough, a retinal surgeon can perform a vitrectomy operation which involves delicately peeling the wrinkled membrane from the surface of the retina. Over time, this allows the retina to flatten out and assume a more normal shape. Cataract if a common complication of this operation. Without surgery, the conditions either remains stable or worsens. ...Read more

My doctor told me my blurry right eye was normal after surgery and to elevate my head with pillows at night.   It's not helping.  What can?

Blurry: It depends on the type of surgery and how long ago you had the surgery. For example, cataract surgery often requires 1-3 months for full healing. Retinal surgery often requires longer. The key elements of faster recovery include using all prescribed eyedrops or medicines, taking it easy with physical activity, don't rub the eye, follow your doctor's directions... ...Read more

I would get more than one opinion before committing to another operation or botox. The prism lenses produce less reversible changes. ...Read more

Eye pain: You don't mention how long these symptoms have been going on but when there is pain involved in your eye you need to see an eye doctor. There are things called floaters in the eye.

Epiretinal membranes: Have a variable course. The progression is unique for the individual.

These are guidelines are of course modified based on the individual and their anatomic and visual circumstances. ...Read more

Just had corrective eye surgery (lasik) 12 hours ago, right eye not as good as left eye. Is this normal?

Lasik: It is very common to have different vision in each eye as the healing and procedure varies. Just follow your post-op instructions and keep the eyes wel lubricated. If you had better vision just after the procedure and you notice an abrupt visual loss perhaps associated with pain then you should call your surgeon. Small variations in vision, blurry vision and severe dry eye symptoms are normal. ...Read more

I had retinal detachment surgery twice right eye in 2012. Why am i still getting white flashes when my right eye blinks?

Flashes of light: Can be associated with stimulation of the retina. There can be other causes, but your history would make it more likely to be retinal in nature. When you blink the eye undergoes movement. Some patients with a scleral buckle or area of retinal tears that have been repaired by laser or if vitreous gel is still present over these areas, occasional flashes with eye movement can be noted by a patient. ...Read more

Blur ; Distortion: It is not uncommon to experience such symptoms after cataract surgery. The medications you are using should help improve your symptom over time and some may take longer to heal than others. Also, underlying conditions may affect overall vision, ie. Reason for retinopexy. Consult with your surgeon during your dilation exam about these changes, worsening or improving. ...Read more

If I have a blind spot in my right eye, could it be treated (medicine/surgery)? Does working with computers/reading/crying.. Etc, make it worse?

Depends on what the : Blind spot is. Everyone has a blind spot, but their brains are unaware of this blind spot. I assume this is not the blind spot you're talking about. If you actually see a blind spot in your vision, then you need to see and ophthalmologist immediately. Some of those things can be treated, but some of them cannot. You just want to make sure that it is something that's not going to get larger. ...Read more

Good question: There are some cases where cataract can develop from trauma with no known injury, and this is presumed to mean that the injury could have occurred at birth or that the injury is not remembered. However, it is unusual for this type of cataract to suddenly worsen. There are cataracts that can progress very rapidly especially in young people not from any injury or any known cause at all. ...Read more
