Depends: It depends on how long after the surgery as well. It could be simply dry eyes or related to edema in the cornea or retina. Your ophthalmologist can best assess what might be causing the blurry vision.

Cataracts (Definition)

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.

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?

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.

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?

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!

Is it true that cataract surgery complications will only happen 1 in 1000 times?

Is it true that cataract surgery complications will only happen 1 in 1000 times?

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.

Cataract surgery, complete loss of near vision, what to do?

Cataract surgery, complete loss of near vision, what to do?

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. Com

What causes double vision after cataract surgery?

Many possible causes: If the double vision is in just the operated eye, then the cornea or implant has a problem. If the double vision occurs only with both eyes open, then there is a misalignment issue. Your ophthalmologist should be able to sort this out.

Can anyone tell me what causes double vision 2 weeks after cataract surgery?

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. Com

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.
