Winmore73

The operation went fine and there were no complications afterwards. Any discomfort was minimal. However I am very disappointed in the lack of sight I have 10 days after the operation. Although I can devine that by closing the unoperated eye, I have better vision in the new eye - I can't see clearly at any focal point, neither distance, middle range or near to. I read that usually it takes 7 days for the focus to become implemented. I can actually see better with the remaining eye which also has a cataract using my glasses. However, will I be able to see at all after the second cataract operation, I don't know. Also it maybe that in order to accommodate the latter, I shall have to go to the expense of getting new glasses, just for a few weeks - otherwise after the second cataract operation, I won't be able to see at all.

Seven days is too early to judge. There is still inflammation/swelling from the surgery. The doctor should be giving you special eye drops to use for several weeks. Recommend you wait at least 2 months, then decide if the results of the first surgery have been beneficial. If not see another specialist to determine if something is wrong. This is from one who has had surgery on both eyes. It took over a year to resolve the problems created by the surgeries.
