Sand in eye

by Mary E. Thomson

8 days after cataract surgery my vision was 20/30 by the 13th day I could read without my glasses. I was very pleased with the results. I awoke the morning of the 14th day and my vision was worse than ever. I contacted my eye doctor and went to see him a couple of hours later. My vision was 20/60 which is much worse than my pre-op vision. No swelling was found. He said my eye looked like someone had tossed a hand full of sand in it. He added Celluvisc along with my steroid drops. It has now been 17 days and no improvement. I see my doctor again next week. Has anyone had this problem and did it get better?
