I originally posted this as a reply to another thread but thought I'd start my own as I'd like to get some opinions. I had the Lentis M Plus lens implanted into my right eye 6 weeks ago. The left eye implant that was planned for a week later was postponed indefinitely as I had massive ghosting/double vision and glare in the right, which caused me enormous distress and concern. I have since had two other checkups, one was unscheduled as I was so worried, and my one month post-op was l2 weeks ago. I was convinced that the lens was decentred but the optometrists say it’s perfectly centred. It feels like I’m forcing my eye to see distance through the close up part of the lens.
I won’t name the clinic yet as I’m undecided whether I’m happy with them or not. I’m trying to convince myself it’s getting better (but I don't think it is) so I’m keeping an open mind for now. It’s only been 6 weeks, but they are easily the longest 6 weeks of my life! As things stand, if my left eye had been done after a week and had the same effect, I would be almost housebound, I certainty would not have been able to drive. I’m only a young 53, so I’m glad I still have a good untouched left eye (with a contact lens).
I have been assured that the eye/lens will “settle” and my brain will adapt, so I guess only time will tell. The clinic will happily explant the Mplus lens (so they say) and replace with a monovision lens, but that really defeats the whole exercise, so I do want this to work.
Has anyone had experience of these bifocal type lenses being de-centred and re-positioned? if not, I’d love to hear from anyone who had the same ghosting/blurred vision which lasted at least 5-6 weeks then cleared.
Anyone tried exercises to help with Neuroadaptation? This company in the US will happily sell me their program for $500… http://www.revitalvision.com/
