Cataract Surgery Complications Blurred Vision
I am 26 year old. I undergone steroid induced cataract surgery & uveitis on both eyes but under control. Now blurred vision what may be problem now?
Occurs whent here is a clouding (or change in protein composition) of the normally clear lens (which is located behind the pupil and iris) inside the eye. Cataracts are most commonly due to aging, but can be congenital (born with it), due to trauma or uveitis (eye inflammation). Can be worsened by long-term topical steroid ...Read more
I have developed a relevant increase in myopia and a blurred vision due to light sensitivity 3 days after cataract surgery. What can be the reasons?
Not uncommon: The eye is in the early healing stages and is usually accompanied by some inflammation. Post op eye drops help. A very red eye and or pain would be reasons for concern. Any severe decrease in vision would be a reason for concern - and reason to see your surgeon.See 1 more doctor answer
I have blurred vision and pain upon movement of the eye, had cataract surgery in late sept and been having problems ever since, I was attacked by my step daughter (punched 14 times in the eyes) could this be part of the trouble now????????
Trauma certainly can: If you haven't so far you need to have your eyes examined for evidence that trauma has left you with some significant issues. You may have had some internal bleeding (in the eye), be developing a pressure problem, etc. All this may end up causing permanent visual impairment if not treated.
3 weeks out cataract surgery. First, blurry vision, droopy eyelid, & now torn retina. Can it all be repaired? What does it involve?
Yes: Surgery can repair the droopy eyelid as well as the torn retina. It depends on what is causing the droopy eyelid to determine what treatment works the best. Also, depends on how much of the retina is detached to determine what treatment works the best and what the vision prognosis is. Your ophthalmologist will be able to help you. Good luck!
It depends: Depending on the surgeon, type of cataract operation, and condition of the eye at the time of surgery, complications that can result in decreased vision typically occur in less than 1 in 1000 procedures. Although some non-vision threatening conditions may occur more commonly, they will not affect the results. Surgeon experience and technique is key, though.See 2 more doctor answers
CS Complications: Post Cataract Surgery Issues/Complications: need for glasses still, need YAG laser: PCO, dry eye sx/worsening, eyelid droop, recurrent uveitis, eye bleeding, needing another surgery/laser (for multiple reasons: refractive surprise, swelling of macula CME, IOL dislocation, failing cornea), rare: infection, retinal hole, detachment, loss of vision, loss of eye, loss of life; eyedoc2020@blogspot. ComSee 1 more doctor answer
Post Cat Surgery: VA: Common Post Cataract Surgery Issues: need for glasses still for residual astigmatism/refractive error; need YAG laser due to PCO (Posterior Capsular Opacification: happens in 10-25% of patients): YAG laser helps decrease glare/streaks of light patients notice from PCO; more info at: eyedoc2020@blogspot.

I had cataract surgery and corneal transplant (dsek). The corneal slipped and a "refloat" was done. It had "scratched" from stretching the cornea and vision was blurred. How many corneal transplants can be performed on the same eye with positive results?
Loss of near vision: Cataract surgery (CS) has benefits & risks (rare but possible: loss of best vision, infection, loss of eye, etc). When CS benefits (improved vision from advanced cataract excision) outweigh risks, surgery is indicated. New generation premium lenses allow for better near, intermediate, reading VA. If monofocal lens placed, you will need reading glasses or Lens exchange. See eyeyedoc2020.blogspot. ComSee 1 more doctor answer
Vision & Catarac: Vision usually decreases with cataract formation; Depending on pre-operative risk factors (ie, hypertension, diabetes, pseudoexfoliation, trauma, etc) the vast majority of patients achieve 20/20 vision after cataract surgery (low risk factor patients). Most patients say colors are brighter after VA much better. More info at: eyedoc2020 blogspot comSee 1 more doctor answer
Swelling: This can last days or weeks.Get a more detailed answer ›
Double vision: Double vision after cataract surgery can be due to: imbalance of refraction (glasses rx) or eye muscles between eyes; uncovering of misalignment of eyes from youth/birth; if injection used before surgery, can rarely be from eye muscle damage. New eye glasses Rx helps in most cases depending on cause & severity. Majority resolve in >1mo. See eyedoc2020.blogspot. ComSee 2 more doctor answers

Vision issues for4yrs;had b/l cataract surgery-no relief-finally diagnosed w/ vertical diplopia. Dr ordered MRI w/o contrast due to44GFR. Need contrast?
Perhaps: If you have no other symptoms or signs, and the MRI without contrast is normal, this is probably due to a 4th cranial nerve problem (atherosclerosis/hypertension) or decompensation of an old strabismus. If it can be treated with prisms in your glasses, you can just follow it. If you are really unhappy, then get Peds oOhthalmology consult. Get Radiology consult for imaging question.
