My Recent Cataract Surgery on the right eye

by CK
(South Plainfield, NJ)

I had my cataract surgery recently about 9 days ago. Immediately after surgery it was very blurry, upon the first post op visit the doctor mentioned since I had dense cataract, it takes time . Upon my second post op visit, the Doctor mentioned I have corneal edema and gave the Muro 128 5% saline
solution in addition to the other post op eye drops. In spite of the saline solution, my vision did not improve much and I have my third post op visit scheduled in couple of days. I am afraid and concerned I might not have any good news. The doctor asked for a 7 day period and she was very confident but I passed that 7 day period into the 9th day now. The vision improved compared to the first day after surgery after 3 days, but from 3 days to 9th day it stayed stable more or less. I could see the pics but not clear and I can recognize colours , I could see distance objects blurry and cloudy, very near objects ok. I got implanted the regular monofocal IOL. The doctor mentioned due to dense cataract more phaco was used and surgery was little longer and because of that I got the corneal edema.

I never knew about the cataract complications due to dense cataract surgery thought cataract surgeries were so popular and 98% successful. I got it done for my mom and father both eyes few years ago and never heard of this corneal edema and it was very successful.

I request the experts and anyone who sees this message looking for suggestions. What is the max time or ideal time I should wait before going for the next steps ? Did anyone has similar situation and any luck and improved vision after 2 or 4 weeks ? The least I want is the corneal transplant.

After almost 3 weeks, the corneal edema subsided and my vision improved a lot. Even the halos and glare in the night lights reduced.

I had exactly the same experience. My eye doctor, who I trust completely kept telling me not to worry as the corneal edema would resolve itself. It was about three or four weeks or more before my vision came back clearly, but it did resolve itself and now I'm enjoying crystal clear vision in that eye which is far better than before the surgery. Patience is the answer here. It will turn out OK.

Frightened?
by: Edmund

Hello my friend,

Your situation is one that would scare the pants off anyone.

I'm glad your vision is improving and I'm sure your vision will be restored.

Doctors never know what to expect with any surgery. There's always an element of surprise. When something goes awry, then they begin conjuring up reasons and explanations. Notice how neither of these point the arrows at them for their error.

I understand there is an attorney in New York who handles these cases. He has a pretty good track record for compensation. If you look up on line, his name is something like Osinski. I am going to contact him concerning my issue. I have the curtain effect in the right corner of the eye I had worked on.
