Dr Hagan or anyone please. Kind of desperate and doing my best to research for my wife before making any wrong IOL decisons. Have initial appointment lined up with 2 different eye surgeons in next 2 weeks to get their opinion.
My wife is 42 and had good vision until 2 weeks ago (no glasses for near or far). 2 weeks ago, out of the blue she got blurry vision that lasted roughly from mornign till late afternoon. Now she is seeing ok again but if she covers the right eye she sees that left eye is slightly blurry.
We are located in Europe. We are struggling to decide what IOL to use. My wife is scared of making the wrong choice and of going from good normal eye sight to bad. She is a group fitness teacher 50% and works in office 50%.
Group fitness = She is in front of around 40 people giving classes. Communicating constantly. Classes range from Yoga to strenous weight lifting type of group fitness classes.
Office Work = Usuall use of laptop/PC, mobile phone etc.
The idea of not seeing near/indermediate scares her and we really don't know what kind of IOL to go for :-(
I have included initial dignosis of the eye doctor.
OU Cataracta praesenilis (Cataract subcapsular posterior)
Mother of the patient also Cataracta presenile (Between age 40 and 45)
I would like to assign you the above-mentioned patient for cataract surgery. On 25th June For the first time I saw the patient on an emergency basis after experiencing a massive loss of vision, left more than to the right, within the last week the view was clouded very quickly.
The uncorrected visual acuity is partial right 1,0 left 0,8 partial, but completely blurred in both eyes.
The visual acuity in both eyes corrected is very sharp, partially 1,0.
Subjective refractory values from the right +0.5 -0.25 103 °, left +0.5 -0.75 137 °.
Correspondingly, there is a clear clouding of the posterior shell, much more on the left than on the right.
The other findings on the anterior eye sections are inconspicuous.
The intraocular pressure was 12 mmHg on both sides.
The Fundus centrally reduced insight, especially on the left, the Papillae are unremarkable, physiologically excavated, the macula can not be reliably assessed, the retina is peripherally well visible on the right eye it is not visible everywhere on the left eye, where it can be seen, she is without pathology.
Any advice from anyone?
