I had a rezoom lens implanted in my left eye and tecnis multifocal lens in my right eye in March. I am 35 year old female. Apart from less than perfect intermediate vision I am very happy with the lenses and am adapting well to them. Unfortunately I've had PVDs in both eyes so the swirly floaters are annoying at the moment. I also have lattice degeneration and was quite myopic (around -8).
My tecnis multifocal eye has already developed pco - covering about a third of the capsule. I went for a yag laser proccedure and was all set up in front of the machine. The surgeon was struggling and suddenly left the room to get more advice. She came back and told me they had decided it was too dangerous to do the yag. To come back in 6 months and they could see if they could do it then. After some pressing she said that there usually is a slight gap between the capsule and the lens but my capsule was tight against the lens and she was worried that she might damage the lens.
My question is - how common is this. Is it likely that if the pco progresses I will be able to have the yag proceedure? There is already noticable haziness in my vision. Does having a multifocal like the tecnis with many rings make it harder to focus the laser?
