hi had tetraflex lens implants 8 months a go great vision 20 - 15 and good reading ability
About 3 months later I got a lens bag wrinkle in one eye. I went and seen the surgeon who did a yag laser treatment on one eye this left me with a small stardust. I went back and seen the surgeon who said the yag size and condition of the lens are good. Im putting of getting the other one done until I can find out what's causing the star burst. I have dry skin around my eye and use Vaseline on them if I got a small amount in my eye could this cause the wrinkle and starbust? If so could the eye with out a lens bag be irrigated ? To remove the haze ?
No, Vaseline cannot get from the outside of your eye to the inside.
Have you read up on the the Tetraflex and other types of implants? Starbursts and halos are very common side effects with many of them. You need to ask your doctor if the starbursts you are seeing are simply caused by the type of lens implant you have.
