After dilation, eyes very blurred, but can see okay with glasses, when not dilated. Indicates cataract surgery? Is cataracts reversible?

No. Everyone's vision becomes blurred with dilation for examination. Cataracts are an clouding of the eye lens that can occur naturally with aging. They are not reversible. However, surgery to remove and insert an artificial lens is indicated only when vision loss affects your activities of daily living, e.g. driving, watching TV, reading the newspaper. The surgery is brief and almost painless. .
Reverse cataracts? Blur normal after dilation normal (lasts @4hr). Cataracts can't be reversed. N-acetylcarnosine (NAC): small studies showed improve VA in cataract pts. BUT, no double blind, randomized, prospective tudies; trials paid for by company/vested interest; not FDA approved. Surgery only cure. Sun protection & eating a diet rich in antioxidants may help prevent worsening. More info [email protected]

Right eye, lasik 12 yrs ago, cataract surgery 2 yrs ago. Suddenly getting big starbursts outside at night. Anti-glare glasses don't help - what would?

Check up. Have your eye md check your refraction and examine the eyes. You have had cataract surgery in the past and your eyes may be developing posterior opacification of the capsule that surrounds your intraocular lens implant. Your eye md can tell you if a laser capsulotomy would help clarify you vision, or if is just a glasses prescription change. Read more...

I am 26 year old. I undergone steroid induced cataract surgery & uveitis on both eyes but under control. Now blurred vision what may be problem now?

Capsular haze? Your eye(s) may be developing posterior capsular opacification which can result in lessening visual acuity as well as increasing glare symptoms. A straight forward treatment using a laser effectively corrects this problem (yag laser posterior capsulotomy). Now, because of history of uveitis, you should have your eyes evaluated anyway to rule out other causes of blurred vision; eg. Macular edema. Read more...

Trauma certainly can. If you haven't so far you need to have your eyes examined for evidence that trauma has left you with some significant issues. You may have had some internal bleeding(in the eye), be developing a pressure problem,etc.All this may end up causing permanent visual impairment if not treated. Read more...
