Pain After Cataract Surgery

by Ali Hamza
(Toronto, Canada)

My father had his cataract surgery done a few months ago. To be specific, one of his eyes was done in October 2012 and the next one was done in the second week of December 2012. According to the doctors and the clinic, everything went well without any complications. But my dad reports having pain in his eyes when he opens them. I wouldn't say its impossible but its definitely more painful to open his eyes, than before the surgery. We have tried talking to the doctor about this but they say everything seems okay in the eyes and its a part of adjustment. I still wanted to consult other people and see what they say. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Eye Pain
by: Kathryn

I had cataract surgery and toric lens implants done in Dec. 2014. It is now 8/3/15 and I constantly have eye pain. Doctors tell me everything looks ok but I have a million floaters, dry eye and I am trying to do my best. Yes I can see better but up close I use 2 glasses and I want to cry every day. I cannot work a desk job and work at normal speed like the young folk do. I am going to sell my car and live out my years the best I can.

I am 63.

I hope your father is better now.

I would like to share with you a fact that after my cataract surgery, I could not bear daylight. Shortly after surgery everything was purple if I closed the eye. After surgery, my headaches never stopped nor did the pain in the eye. I never had headaches before.

To make a long story short, I saw 5 eye doctors, none of them saw anything wrong, one of the doctors gave me drops for inflammation which helped and saw a tiny perforation but he did not seem to want to help me further. In US there is a 2 year statute of limitation for law suits, therefore, until after statute of limitation, you are hitting a stone wall.
