I had cataract surgery l0 days ago. One year ago I was told that I had glaucoma and needed surgery. The cataract came, I am sure as a result of the glaucoma surgery. Now I am extremely worried because I feel as if there is a lens loose on my right eye and I also see a shadow on the right corner of my eye. My doctor seems to think is nothing but I am to have my second eye done day after tomorrow. I am truly scared because I don't get my answers the way I like from my doctor. I am getting this type of new lenses, one eye for close vision and the other for far. What should I do?
This is most likely negative dyphotopsia. It usually goes away. Another concern is a possible retinal detachment. You need to discuss this with your surgeon. Your could get the same problem If he uses the same band of IOL in your other eye.
