Increased Eye Pressure After Cataract Surgery
Anti-inflammatory: The best medication for acute corneal edema after cataract surgery will be with topical steroids.

Perhaps: Corneal abrasion at the time of cataract surgery can happen, but it is very rare. Certain conditions can increase the incidence (dry eyes, blepharitis, even previous lasik). The retinal swelling also is somewhat rare to the level you are describing, but it too still happens. Conditions like diabetes, uveitis history, and pre-existing wrinkling of the retina (epiretinal membrane) increase risk. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
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
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

Double and blurry vision in left eye after glaucoma trab surgery with express shunt implant in right eye, what to do?
Immediately after: surgery, it is normal to have some blurry vision. The swelling initially will change the way your eye muscles function and cause you to have some double vision. These should improve over time. Continue follow up with your eye surgeon as trab surgery is "high maintenance" surgery and requires some constant TLC. Good luck. ...Read more
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
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
For someone who had posterior vitreous detachment completed prior to cataract surgery, what is the risk of post-cataract surgery retinal detachment?
Can anterior vitreous detachment occur before pvd? Does it reduce the retinal risks assoc with cataract surgery? Symptoms other than floaters?
Vitreous detachment: May occur at the level of the anterior retina adjacent to an area called the ora serrata. The vitreous may delaminate from the retina at any location, meaning either posterior or anterior at anytime either from trauma or idiopathic. If the vitreous is already detached from the retina, then the risks of a retinal detachment is theoretically reduced. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Post lasik , left eye +0.5 and -0.5 astig, right eye plano and -0.25 astig. Is this a poor outcome? Was myopic before surgery. Right eye poor distance
Blurred vision from anesthesia two weeks after rotator cuff surgery . Eyes red and glassy otherwise good outcome.
Yes: Lasik generally gives excellent vision after the first week of healing. But this is a biological system and the tissues can modify over time. We call this regression and it usually adds some degree of myopia over time. For those in which this happens, it is usually minor but if it is significant, an "enhancement" procedure can be done to reverse the regression. Discuss with your lasik doc. ...Read more
