My recent cataract surgery

by Loretta
(Morgantown wv)

Had cataract surgery approximately 8 weeks ago in my left eye. Right eye was done first and all went well. Left eye has what looks like a black spider in it. My eye doctor explained what happened and said it was steroids that he put in my eye and that eventually it would dissolve
It hasn't yet. I am being seen by my eye doctor on a regular basis Still putting drops in that eye. He says the lens is in a perfect position. I am very frustrated still have not been able to get new glasses. Having to use readers.

by: DEB

I HAD MY RT EYE DONE 2/28/18, AND LT 3/7/18. I HAVENT DRIVEN SINCE!!! I CANT READ OR READ A MAGAZINE OR ANY SMALL PRINT. IVE TRIED ALL THE STRENGHTHS OF READERS, NONE HELP.
I SEE FLASHES OF LIGHT ON BOTH SIDES OF MY EYES AND SPIDER LEGS BETWEEN MY EYES. I STILL HAVE TO WEAR THE 'TERMINATOR' SUNGLASSES IN THE BRIGHT LIGHTS, EVEN AT THE MOVIES. MY DR HAS TAKEN TEST AFTER TEST AND SAYS IVE HEALED CORRECTLY.
NOW, HE HAS ME ON RESTASIS, FOR DRY EYES....WELL IVE CRIED SO MUCH IM SURE MY EYES ARE NOT DRY!!!
I FEEL LIKE MY INDEPENDENCE HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY. I HAVE TO TAKE A UBER IF I HAVE TO GO ANYWHERE OR BOTHER PEOPLE FOR A RIDE
PLS LET ME KNOW WHAT TO DO...IM DESPERATE!!

Floaters
by: Anonymous

I think the "spider" thing should eventually lessen. I had some very bad floaters that appeared several months after surgery, including something that looked to me like a spiderweb across my entire eye. They have decreased. Takes time. I wish that was all that happened. I have had pain and aching in my right eye for the past 2 1/2 years. No one can determine what is causing it. I even have had an MRI and am waiting to hear back. I would think if it were something, though, I would have been contacted by now. It's been four days. I'm running out of patience and hope. Will not have other eye done ever!
