Just a quick note to say hi! I have a crystalens in one eye implanted June 2009. Due to various mistakes (power was wrong, lens ended up in anterior position, maybe other things)- who knows) my vision is clear only at fingertips/computer and not before or after. When I put a corrective lens over it for distance, I lose the fingertips/computer ability. Why? When I wear +2.50 readers over that I can read, thank God, but not small print. Why can't the range be expanded? Why wasn't the range expansive as advertised? Can't seem to get an answer.
Just wanted to let you know that I got an Acrysof IQ lens put in my second eye on Dec 30 and I like it better than the Sofport (although I still think the Sofport is very good also). I think the IQ gives me better contrast sensitivity, especially in low light.
No one ever knew for sure what all the bubble-like dots were in my vision. They have diminished (or blurred?) somewhat and I didn't get them wth the 2nd surgery (just a few more-visible floaters).
Anyway, the vision in the 2nd eye with the IQ lens tested 20/30 the day after surgery and I think it is really great!
I am definetly thinking of seeing another doctor. Lawyer no. Class action would be nice.
Not too well. He seemed ready to dismiss any concerns. He then told
me that I will always have problems with this lens because of my large pupil.
Now he confirms this? I am now using pilocarpine 4 or 5 times a day to
give me some relief. It helps the most for driving at night. Funny thing is, I picked
this doc because 1. He was a primary investigator for the FDA study of the Crystalens
HD. 2. Because he taught Sunday school at his church. Not being a religious man
myself, I at least thought he would have mercy on me and recommend what was best
Just a quick note to say hi! I understand that you had Crystalens implant(s). Just wanted to touch base.
mmmmpppp, You are right ... I am a tech writer. But as far as thorough goes, sometimes I think I am able to learn just enough to annoy the doctors with all my questions. You write well, too, and always make good comments.
Dr. Benjamin, Dr. Siebel amoung others in the area. It seems they all
perform their surger at the Specialty Surgical Center in Beverly Hills.
This mind you is over the course of a year and a half as I really am
having a hard time deciding. I think it is the same everywhere though
I think they really push these lenses around there because they know
money is not the main issue.
How large are your pupils when they are diolated. I would just like to know because you posted about your Crystalens and I am thinking of the Crystalens for myself but my pupils are 7.9. I have seen 3 Opthomologist and can you believe it, I got 3 Iol recomendations! Seems as if each were a consultant for their respective Iol. Thanks.
