Yes. Same basic drill - had a detachment, then vitrectomy/gas bubble/scleral buckle, then vitrectomy to remove epiretinal membrane combined with cataract surgery. I ended up with lots more astigmatism than I had before and more than 3 diopters off plano. I suspect an error made in the IOL calculations at that time, but the buckle and high myopia do throw everything off too, so who knows.
Anyway, I had PRK to correct the error. I ended up with reduced astigmatism and at about +.5 in that eye - not ideal, but a lot better than before. I subsequently had cataract surgery in the other eye and ended up at -.5 in that eye, so only a diopter of difference. Lots of complications between here and there but I'm basically seeing fine now with light progressive glasses.
The PRK was quite painful but the pain died down quickly. It is difficult to wait while your vision settles down to see where you end up - the other main drawback of PRK. But I'd definitely do it again, because leaving aside distortion from the ERM peel and big floaters from a PVD in the other eye, I have 20/20 stereoscopic vision now.
Sorry to hear about your situation. Double vision is really hard to cope with.
Has it been determined that the diopter difference is definitely the cause of yours? What explanation for your double vision have you been given by your retina and cataract surgeons? And what is their recommendation for resolving the double vision?
What is your glasses prescription and your vision with the glasses on? And only one eye has had cataract surgery? Which eye?
You have 2 diopters of unequal refractive error (aneisometrophia) often people can adjust to this over time and I've seen people with 4 diopters difference wear glasses without problems. Your options would be an IOL exchange RE, refractive corneal surgery (Lasik or PRK ) to reduce the myopia in the RE or wear a contact lens on the RE to help the image sizes be closer together.

Yes too bad she's moved on to different interests.
I am going to see my optometrist this week for a referral to a cataract surgeon. It's been a little over 14 months now since I had a vitrectomy/ERM peel in the affected eye and the time has come to address the cataract that formed afterward. I saw the ophthalmologist (retinal specialist) who performed the vitrectomy and he's good with going ahead with it. Will update as things progress.
