Pterygium removed & loss of vision

Male, CA, member since Feb 2013
I had a Pterygium removed from my Left Eye in October 2012. The Vision in that eye seemed off from that day on. Even with 2 new eyeglass prescriptions it did not seem right.
On the morning of January 24 2013 the vision in that same eye rapidly began to fail to the point that it is now like looking at a fogged mirror. I am looking for clues or a reason for this decline in my vision. The Eye Doctor who did the surgery says it is a coincidence and not related to the surgery.

I would recommend a second opinion.

Thank You Dr. O,

I really appreciate your response.

I am in the process of trying to get seen at UC Davis in California.

Hopefully this can be resolved or recovers on it's own soon.

Best Regards
