Sorry but I did not finish my question a few mintues ago. so please excuse my repeating myself. I had multifocal lens
implanted for cataract surgery two years ago. I was left with black lines (like parenthesis) at the outer corner of each eye. They are not visible to someone looking at the eye, but I see them constantly. The surgeon kept telling me they
would disappear - but they haven't. I went for a second opinion last week & this opthamalogist said it was the multifocal
implant & it was one of the reasons he does not recommend them. He said another surgery would be 'iffy'. He mentioned drops for the eyes but they can burn & he seemed reluctant to prescribe them.
I wrote my original surgeon a note telling him of my unhappiness with him & the surgery. He called me immediately &
begged me to come in & let him look at my eyes again saying that he does not want to leave me with such a problem
& insists there are other remedies such as a laser treatment that takes just a few minutes.
Anyone here have any ideas? thanks.....Terry
Thank you for your quick response to my question regarding black lines after cataract
surgery. I agree my doctor does want to help. .... if he suggests removal of the multifocal lens how dangerous is this procedure? My eyes are really uncomfortable now but I don't want to do anything dangerous & the other surgeon said this could be 'iffy'. I suppose I am jumping to conclusions before he suggests anything like this, but I want to be mentally prepared.
I appreciate your advice & this column.
