Two years ago I had cataract surgery, since then, I feel I have experience some fuzzy distance vision, on occasion. I went to doctor and he said I have some scar tissue, and he wanted to remove it with a laser. I also have dry eye, could that cause periodic fuzzy vision. If I have some scar tissue, when should I have it removed, and what is the down side in postponing it ? Thanks Bob

Dear Chester552,

It is very common for individuals after cataract surgery to develop a secondary cataract.  This can be opened quite easily with a laser.  The downside of waiting is that the vision will not get better.  However, one usually only performs this procedure if the vision is reduced from the opacification of the membrane.
