I had cataract surgery in one eye one month ago. Vision was immediately blurry. Very poor. Prior to surgery vision was good except for halos. Met with surgeon who told me that there was much trauma in eye and he referred me to a retinal expert. Photos were taken and it show very restricted blood flow to the retina. Put on anti virol and anti bacterial drops and medicine. After 4 weeks and referred to two other retinal experts no improvement and if anything vision is slightly worse. All say that arterial flow to retina is very restricted stopped. Arteries show complet blockage about 1/2 way back to retina. The last expert two days ago said that Arteries are not carrying blood. No treatment recommended to rebuld blood flow, only keep on steroids and anti virol medicine. Has anyone experience this lack of blood to retina and is there any treatment to restore blood flow to retina.
Retinal experts say that it most liketly won't recover and that it will eventually result in blindness. There must be some treatment to restore blood flow. How about Chelation therapy?
This was caused by surgery. vision was good prior to surgery and was immediately much worse after surgery, retinal experts agree that is was a result of surgery but don't know why. No prior vision or artery problems. No previous eye problems except lasic surgery several years ago with good results. The good eye appears very healthy with no apparent arterial problems. The lens replacement looks good with no apparent problems other than massive bleeding after surgery and loss of blood flow to retina immediately after surgery.
