Hi, I had a tetraflex intraocular lens implanted on my left eye on Tuesday .Unfortunately this has not been successful.My surgeon has stated that either the "haptic" edge has not opened and/or oriented correctly or there is some residue behind the lens which will dissapate. I am due to see the surgeon tomorrow and as there has been no significant improvement the liklehood is that the lens is not fitting correctly rather than the some residue as this would have dissapated by now.
I understand the surgeon will try to realign the lens, however I thought that he should extract this lens and implant a new one. Can anyone tell me if this problem is common and what is the best procedure to take to ensure a successful outcome
