I had a YAG Capsulotmy done on my right eye 6mos. ago and immediately following the laser I was confronted with a series of symptoms that have compromised my vision and some are still present. Initially, I immediately had intense glare especially from overhead fluorescent lighting and huge starbursts when out in the sun. This has subsided a little, but I still have a problem with overhead lighting, esp. flourescent and a small degree of sunbursts or glare and starbursting around lampposts. Sometimes, that eye has a sensation of looking through a glass lens that has oil spread over it. This is sometimes generalized and sometimes confined to the inner aspect of that eye, where I have noticed the most problematic.
From the beginning, the innermost aspect of my eye has a hazy, cloudy patch that produces alot of glare and flickers when I move my eye left to right . This has been a constant since I had the laser, with little improvement. Sometimes I notice a cloudy patch on other areas of my vision which clears after several blinks. This is very annoying with the feeling that the vision in that eye is "impeded". I also have experienced a lot of shadowing across my eye which is only now gradually improving and not so frequent.
Three mos. post laser I had a lot of dark cobwebbing and large floaters suddenly appear in my vision. This has subsided somewhat, but I still have the intense glare,glassy appearance in sunlight or under overhead lighting and a constant is the cloudy patch in the innermost aspect of my eye which flickers when I move my vision across it.
A visit to a fill-in Opthalomologist resulted in no answer and no evidence of a tear or retinal problem. Could you shed some light on what the problem may be? I am going to book another visit with my regular Opthalmologist which will take awhile.
