Small 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
Halos after CS: Halos are not uncommon after cataract surgery: due to healing process/inflammation; type of implant you had (multifocal implants can give more halos initially compared to monofocal or accommodating implants). Majority of halo complaints resolve as brain adapts. More info: [email protected] ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
For someone who had posterior vitreous detachment completed prior to cataract surgery, what is the risk of post-cataract surgery retinal detachment?
A brief summary: Prior to the procedure you are given an I.V. And your eye is dilated. You will also be given antibiotic eye drops. Sedation is given to you just before the procedure starts and your face is cleaned and a sterile drape covers everything but your eye. By this time, you should not have any memory of the procedure. There should also be no discomfort at all. ...Read moreSee 4 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

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
Typical to have a refraction before laser surgery on eye? Cataract surgery 5-6 years ago. Had refraction as part of routine eye exam 3 months ago.
Yes: Essentially, yes. Lensectomy is the doctors name for removal of the crystalline lens in the eye, which is the same thing that is done with a cataract operation. It can be done from either the front approach usually used by cataract surgeons, or the rear approach often used by retinal surgeons. In most cases, an artificial lens (implant) is used to replace the removed natural lens. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
S/p Cataract choices: If you mean which implant to choose for an intraocular lens implant, see Cataract Surgery Options at eyedoc2020.blogspot.com. If you mean which lens is better after cataract surgery: depends on residual refractive error (is there astigmatism, reading ok? what IOL was placed?). If you need reading, intermediate, distance rx, progressives are best for young pt's if brain can learn. Full answer @blog ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
