Dilated Pupil After Cataract Surgery
Maybe: Sometimes laser vision correction is offered after cataract surgery in order to decrease dependence on glasses, but it is not required. There is another type of laser that is sometimes needed to improve vision in about 10% of cataract patients called yag capsulotomy. Speak to your cataract surgeon to clarify. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
No, your vision generally doesn't deteriorate after cataract surgery unless other problems arise, such as macular degeneration or glaucoma: In cataract surgery, the eye doctor (ophthalmologist) removes the clouded lens from your eye and replaces it with a clear, artificial lens. This lens is very durable and should last for the rest of your life. Sometimes the capsule that holds the artificial lens becomes cloudy after cataract surgery. This can affect your vision. An eye doctor can use a laser to make the lens capsule clear again. Most people use glasses, at least some of the time, after cataract surgery. After your eyes have healed from surgery, your doctor may recommend prescription eyeglasses. ...Read more

Depends: The eye usually starts to look and feel better after a couple of weeks. Visual recovery depends on the severity of the underlying retinal disease and what techniques were used during surgery. For example, if gas or oil where used, your recovery might be weeks or months. Hope this helps. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
2nd eye cataract: After presumably successful cataract surgery on a patient's first eye, he will be given the option of whether he wants the other eye operated on. Most patients will eventually decide to do this, but it's not mandatory. It mainly depends on the severity of the other cataract and if the patient is having persistent visual symptoms from it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hole in Retina: An rd is usually caused by a hole or tear in the retina or from membranes pulling on the retina. If you are referring to an rd after lasik, it is possible that distortion of the globe during surgery can cause a detachment, but it is unlikely. You should immediately see an eye md if you have symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
3-8 weeks.: Although less common, a short acting gas bubble in a relatively simple detachment can facilitate a shorter period of face down positioning. Surgeons use gases with different rates of absorption for this purpose. Usually drops continue for between two and four weeks, depending on situation. Finally, silicon oil can be used and no positioning at all is required but the oil must be removed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Edema p Cataract Sur: Yes, vision can worsen after cataract surgery temporarily due to swelling of the cornea or sometimes macula. Steroid and nonsteroid drops help with the healing. Vision improves in the vast majority of patients after healing. If corneal swelling/edema does not resolve, PBK: pseudophakic bullous keratopathy can occur requiring a corneal transplant: high success rate, low complication rate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Possibly: Possible, but most likely not, infections are rare. You need to see your eye doctor immediately. If it is an infection a delay in treatment of just a few hours can make the difference between seeing perfectly vs being blind the rest of your life. Other possible causes of redness could be uveitis, allergy to drops, dryness, corneal abrasion. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Unlikely from LASIK: Floaters are caused by clumping or debris in the vitreous jelly of the eye. Most near sighted individuals and inidviduals over 50 see floaters at some point in their life. Any type of trauma can exacerbate floaters and if the lasik surgery was 'traumatic' the floaters in the jelly may be noticed or worsened. ...Read more
Not a problem: While the pupil is dilated during surgery, it rapidly goes back to undilated. Because the natural lens is much larger than the artificial lens, it pushes the iris forward giving some increase to pupillary size - which is what you are used to. After surgery then, the iris falls farther back and is smaller in many cases. Your surgeon can advise you on routine follow up for this. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
