I recently had catatact surgery to replace the lens in my right eye. The surgery seemed to go very well and healing was otherwise uneventful. The surgery was 4 weeks ago.
The problem is, I have a kind of double vision coming out of that eye. When I close my left eye, the straight lines on the highway appear to diverge by about 6 degrees. My opthmologist says it will eventually go away. However, it has not changed at all since the day after the surgery.
It appears to me that the lens is of a improper match for my eyes. It is important the note that I had RK surgery 14 years ago in this eye. I will soon need the left eye replaced and do not want to do that one until this one is resolved. Should I wait another two months or proceed for a second opinion and the the lens replaced again?
