Left eye problems following cataract surgery

by Peter
(San Diego, CA USA)

My left eye was always my good eye. I was advised to have cataract surgery in both eyes. The right eye was done first and there was great improvement. A month later the left eye was done. Immediately after there was severe blurriness in the eye. I was advised I had wet macular degeneration and should begin eye injections with Avastin. Prior to this I had no symptoms of wet macular degeneration in the left eye and had excellent vision. Could the surgery have been the problem? The ophthalmologist and retina specialists have not volunteered that as a cause. I have been getting injections for three years now and the vision is still blurry, but stable.
