I had cataract surgery only one month ago, with a toric lense implant. I am 58 years old and in excellent health. Within 2 weeks, my distance vision started to deteriorate and I saw a criss-cross starburst pattern when looking at headlights at night. My eye surgeon used the YAG laser on my eye only 3 weeks post op. He said my (young) age and good immune system caused my capsule to become hazy rapidly. It is now 5 days post the YAG procedure, and suddenly my starburst problem is worse than ever - very long, thin streaks of lights coming from some bright lights at night. ?? I am afraid to have YAG done again as I had a retinal tear in the same eye several years ago. I was told the YAG might have to be done twice. I don't understand why that would be necessary and would appreciate an explanation. I will be seeing my dr. again soon. thank you!
