My 85 year old mom had cataract surgery about 1 month ago and she has been seeing black spots eversince. The spots are both small and big. She was told by her surgen that after few weeks she should be better. But after 1 months she has not improved. What should she do and what is the treatment for this black spots?
There are a number of causes of black spots. The two most common 1. vitreous floaters, black spots that move when the eye moves and are present most of the time 2. negative dysphotopsia that are due to the IOL, especially multifocal IOLs. Use the archives and search feature to read more about both.
There are other causes. If they are getting worse ask for a second opinion
I had surgery ninety days ago and see hundreds of black spots in left eye, My right eye is scheduled for cataract surgery in 5 days. This is scary to me, My sight is better in my left eye, except for the black dots. Could this be.a sign that my eye is rejecting the lens from the cataract surgery? Help please!
