I have been a contact wearing person since 5th grade (3.75 prescription). I just turned 41 and have been looking into getting lasik done. During my check up I uncovered a cataract in my left eye. The doctor subscribed I do PRK in my right eye and then have Cataract surgery in my left eye (placing a lense to get 20/20), 6 weeks ago I had the PRK done (right eye) and 12 days ago (left eye) I had cataract surgery.
I used to be able to read without my contact in but now I can't read or see a computer screen without reading glasses. I have been very off balance as well. My eyes are healing well and are both 20/20 now but I am very off balance. I was wondering if the off balanceness will go away as my eyes heal or if there could be something else going on. Any insight would be appreciated. Thank you!!
