I had a macular hole operation 12 months ago and was told a cataract would form in around 12 months which it did so. I had the cataract operation about 3 weeks ago now and for post op treatment all I was given was 10ml of pred forte to put in my eye four times a day. My eye has been red and sore but the sight is getting better though I still have blurry vision at times and pain in my eye.
When I see the consultant again next week I can on ly assume he will stop any meds from then , of course I am not sure as yet! I think maybe your dads eye will irritate post op for some time but it seems your consultant should be giving you answers, ask for a second opinion, eyesight is so important! the number of drops sounds unusual! I had similar treatments post when I had the macular hole operation however you need to be answered properly by the eye surgeon.
Both my wife and I have had both eyes done for cataracts. I also have had both eyes with retinal tears and operations. It sounds like your father has "Dry Eye". This is a common problem with cataract surgery and is treated by using a sterile lubricant. The medications taken for inflammation and infections can contain chemicals that irritate the eye. MY wife dealt with this for over 4 months. It was cured with the use of lubrication drops.
Buy these drops. They are at any pharmacy (Walmart probably the cheapest) Buy no preservative drops. They come in a box with many single application vials of enough liquid to do both eyes. You snap the cap off and use it then throw it away. It is important to get no preservative drops as the preservative in drops can cause eye irritation if used over a long period. If he uses these faithfully and three or 4 times a day he should find an improvement over time.
yes sir..my father has diabetes. As such the doctor never said of any complication during the operation . What suggestion would you give for my fathers problem ???Should we consult some other doctor???? Is taking steroids in eyes good for such a long period????Please help.
