That's a very difficult thing to answer. It's like asking how to ignore a headache. I wish we had a good treatment for floaters and I think in the near future ophthalmologists will have a quick, office-based procedure for floaters. For now, try to ignore them. Arrrghh!!!

There are pupil constricting drops: pilocarpine and alphagan are the most common. You would need a prescription for either of these. They may be helpful, but not guaranteed. Also, try Hunter's Orange tinting. You may find this at the sporting section of an outdoor department store (one of those big strip malls you find in America...probably can't fi...

What is your Best Corrected Vision and Current Refraction? Since your left eye vision is "clear" at 6 ft, then that's great news. This means you are slightly nearsighted. If anything, the IOL power of 16 could have been like a 15.5 or 15.0. This would have left you a little farther sighted, but you wouldn't see clearly at 6 feet. Best ...

This sounds similar to the orbs. Even though you are seeing something new, it still sounds similar. If you haven't had a visual field, then you need a field of vision test to document normalcy or an abnormality. Best wishes, Timothy D. McGarity, Medical Doctor, Ophthalmologist.

There are textbooks written on the different types of conjunctivitis. You first need an accurate diagnosis, then treatment. Usually, it is more simple than a lifelong problem. Best wishes, Timothy D. McGarity, Medical Doctor, Ophthalmologist.

Not for certain, but it sounds like it's a symptom of squinting. Try not to squint. If you must squint, then you need glasses for refinement of your vision (or Lasik) or sunglasses. Sincerely, Timothy D. McGarity, Medical Doctor, Ophthalmologist

OS -0.25 -1.5 0x 90 this is your current, new prescription in the blurry, left eye? I'll assume yes. This means that your surgeon selected the correct IOL power (16.0 D). A 15.0 D would have worked as well, but wouldn't match the other eye's prescription, so I agree that a 16.0 is correct. Ask the other ophthalmologist why are you not seeing...

Your question would best be answered by an occuloplastics specialist, which I'm not. Obviously, if you are scheduled for this procedure, then you are also scheduled with this type of specialist. I would guess that the success rate is 50% depending on what you define as success. Recovery time would be one day back on feet and one week for swelling. Side e...
