How are higher order visual aberrations detected and treated?Have seen 3 eyemds and they can't find cause for my night glare/starbursts which worsens?
Possibly: I assume you mean intraocular lens implants. If the lenses have not been properly inserted, are multifocal, or if there is a residual refractive error, this may occur, although it is fairly uncommon. Another cause could be opacification of the membrane behind the implant, which can be cleared with the use of a laser. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Ortho-keratology: Crt or ortho-k contact lenses act as all contact lenses do, gently shaping the cornea so that it focuses distant objects better.

Talk to your doctor. If surgery went well, glare improves by 1 mon for all-laser lasik, 1-3 for prk. You may need to treat dry eyes, or have a small script for residual astigmatism. ...Read more
Night glares+starbursts worsened even after using artificial tears.Anti-glare glasses - no help.Eye power perfect.Not cataract/glaucoma. Cause/remedy?
Incipient cataract : Early lens changes typically cause glare and star bursts .However, at age 30 corneal pathology can cause visual symptoms. Tears are a treatment for dry eye but not a cure. Superficial punctuate keratitis seen in dry eye is rarely eliminated by artificial tears alone. Anti glare glasses may reduce visual symptoms due to ocular pathology but minimally. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
