Is It Normal After Cataract Surgery For My Eyes To Be Tired
Yes: Patients commonly describe their eyes as feeling tired for the first few weeks after cataract surgery.

Possibly: Some redness is to be expected from the eye drops used and local irritation of the surgery and inflammation. Sometimes bruising over the white part of the eye can appear very red or purple.

Certainly a phone call is warranted to the eye surgeon to address it. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

I used to had very less dry eyes and also minor floaters now its fading away but is it mean that I am not eligible for refractive surgery ?
Problems are not : Typical of dry eyes ; floaters at your age….. Must see an ophthalmologist for proper dx. I personally do not keep the age 18 as the limit for laser. Simple myopia stabilizes after 7-8 years of start of glasses. Hyperopia can have laser @ any age depending on diagnosis. A person becoming myopic at age 16 does not become stable till age 22-24. Keratoconus ; pathological myopia are different. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The deficit is not in the eye itself but in the visual areas of the brain. Amblyopia can be treated at any age because the brain has “plasticity.” The circuitry of the brain can actually change at any age. ...Read more
