Mr John Toth

I had cataract surgery in both eyes about 8 months ago, have developed in the last several weeks flashes and obscured vision in the left eye, went to doctor and he says I have dry eyes, I also have half moon outlines in both eyes since the surgery the doctor said it will go away, it's uncertain the cause. One of the doctors never heard of it. They never tell you why or what it is exactly just brush by it and move on. The cloud I have now sometimes clears up when I blink so I am not sure but I don't believe that if it was inside the eye that it would unless someone out there knows differently. Anyway I am taking Omega3 and eyelid wash along with warm compress on the eye, no change moves in front of the vision on and off? Very concerned I am not being told the truth to save blame.

Shadow to the right NEW
by: Edmund L.

I experience some of your symptoms. There is a curtain effect to the right of my eye. It isn't always there, but when it is, it is very noticeable and distracting.

My doctors claims there is nothing wrong as if she and her staff are telling me it's in my mind.

Same Symptoms
by: Anonymous

That sounds almost exactly like what I have, but I also have floaters, and I get a very bad ache that extents from my eyebrow down to my cheekbone and sometimes into my ear. No one seems to know what is causing this. I've been to four or five doctors, including two ER visits, which got me absolutely nowhere.

I'm beyond discouraged, as it's been six months since my surgery. It's getting quite unbearable.

I will be seeing a dry eye specialist this week; however, I have doubts that this is dry eye, because I have been doing all the things that I have been told to do after that was my diagnosis last December.

Truly a misrepresented surgery. It's supposed to be so easy. Maybe it is for the doctors (a quick buck), but not for the patient.
