Possible: Each procedure has its own potential set of complications and risks. It is possible for your cornea to develop haziness or "scar" tissue as it heals. The chances of this occurring are small and can be lessened by the use of certain topical drugs during and after the surgery. Discuss this issue in more detail with your surgeon. ...Read more

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! ...Read more
Little difference: These both produce excellent end results and there is little to choose between them. Discuss this with your refractive ophthalmic surgeon who can explain the difference and whether one or the other is better for you. ...Read more
No: If there is a significant cataract, which is inside the eye, then cataract removal is the procedure needed. Many times this will correct the vision to a point where glasses may not be needed after. Lasik is an external treatment that will not treat a cataract but help reduce the need for contact lenses or glasses. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: This depends on the cause. Often this is due to a mild residual glasses prescription in the blurry eye, which could potentially be fixed with an enhancement procedure. However, there are several other potential causes of blurry vision. Talk to your prk surgeon for a follow-up evaluation to determine the cause and the best course of action. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Confusing question: Proper vision requires brain input of 2 similar sharp images by well aligned eyeballs.If one eye is sharper than the other, or alignment is bad,the brain may turn off one eye to stop a blurred image.If the vision is off in one eye for an extended period(yrs), amblyopia (lazy eye) can be permanent. Alignment surgery may not hold without vision to keep it on tract.Revision may be necessary/cosmetic ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Likely reading glass: If you are already wearing reading glasses or bifocals before lasik, you will likely still need glasses for near after. Lasik typically corrects the distance vision permanently. After age 40, near vision still needs an additional reading glass correction. There is an option to purposely undercorrect one eye (leaving it near sighted) to allow spectacle free vision - this is called monovision. ...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
No: If you have amblyopia, or lazy eye, then it may mean that you don't have normal vision in that eye. Lasik (or lasek) surgery will not fix that problem. This type of surgery simply corrects your refractive error. That means if you wear contacts or glasses, you can get that prescription lasered onto your cornea, so you don't need to wear those contacts or glasses anymore. ...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: In my opinion if a patient has amblyopia they should never be considered a candidate for lasik surgery. In amblyopia the patient has one eye that is generally has decreased vision which is not correctable by glasses or contact lenses. If a complication occurred to the good eye from surgery the vision could be permanently impaired in the good eye. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is it typical to have a refraction done before laser surgery following cataract surgery. I had a routine eye exam with refraction 3 months ago.
Yes!: Laser vision correction can help people see as well without glasses as they can see with glasses, such as 20/20. If there are eye diseases limiting vision, best vision may not be improvable. See an eye care professional like and eyemd/ophthalmologist or optometrist for advice, and to see whether you are a good candidate. ...Read more
