After cataract surgery, a friend has been experiencing blurred vision and sometimes burning of that eye. Is this a normal side effect? It's been over a year and she is still having problems. She has gone back to her doctor several times and even went to another ophthalmologist for an opinion who said there's nothing wrong with the eye. What is your opinion?
Corneal problems like dry eye syndrome could easily explain her symptoms. There are of course other possibilities. There may not be a major problem with the eye but the person is certainly having some problems and some type of remedy may at least need to be tried. When I get cases like this, I might say something like it is very fortunate that there are no major blinding diseases or threat of a severe problem but there are certainly some symptoms that we need to work on by trying option A then B or C if needed. If problems are still there, he or she may need to get a third opinion.
