Did your doctor have any ideas?
Do you have any residual astigmatism? Did you discuss astigmatism before the procedure? Do you have stitches in your eyes?
My eye had very minor astigmatism before surgery that my doctor thought would correct with the cataract removal. My cornea doesn't have any (I think). Yesterday, they saw a very slight amount of astigmatism. I had 3 stitches removed from my eye yesterday.
I sent my doctor a message regarding the paper/light blocking experiment last night. I haven't heard back from the doctor. Yesterday, my doctor told me to be patient, and let my eye recover for a few more weeks after yesterday's stitches removal.
Actually, since I can eliminate the distortion by blocking the light reaching the bottom edge of my vision path. I'm hopeful that the problem is very solvable -- somehow.
I've heard there are some eye exercises that can be done to improve distance vision. I have good near and intermediate vision, but blurry distance. Do you know of any exercises? Perhaps the bottom edge aberration problem may also be affecting my day time distance vision.
As an HD owner, I can say that it took weeks (months) to find out what my final vision is (will be).
Different doctors use different medications. Find out from your doctor whether or not you should start practicing eye exercises yet. In some cases, it could be dangerous, while in other cases it is pointless to try to start early because the eye is still paralyzed.
Good luck, and please report back whether things improve or not.
Thanks for the additional info. I'm cautiously optimistic about this HD lens. During day light hours I have a pretty good mono vision thing going. My left eye is 20/15 for distance but takes about a 1.50 reader for close up. My right eye is doing pretty well on reading. I'm 56 years old and hope to last a good while longer.
Without being too redundant .... at night, I might as well be on LSD. Actually, LSD, Meth, and heroin - combined. It's unbelievable what I see off of every source of light. It blows my mind that I can turn it off and on now at will by blocking a narrow channel of my vision. I'm grounded at night for safety reasons, but I was out experimenting with my vision while driving around at 2 AM this morning. It's not too bad when I shut off the glare!
I'm curious how much variation in roundness exist in people's pupils. I'm hoping there's not a deformity in the bottom arc of mine.
I'll keep this thread informed as things progress or decline. I'm thrilled to find this source of information. Only wish I would have found it prior to getting the surgery.
