Cataract surgery caused crescent moon
(Hickory Creek, Tx)
I had cataract removal surgery 5 weeks ago and to my dismay it has been a nightmare.
After having a bad reaction to to the anesthesia, I woke up with a crescent moon on the anterior side of my eye. The crescent gets larger when the room or sun is bright and thinner when it dims or I wear sunglasses ( which I do quite often ).
I am so frusterated I don't know what to do. Doctor wants to do a piggy back on it and says it should be ok. I am not sure about this. Doctor said this is a reflection of my new lens because my eye area was deeper then usual. Also my other eye is waiting until this is resolved because the same thing will most likely happen to the other eye as well.
Just to let everyone that reads this know, RESEARCH, RESEARCH, before doing any surgery. You never know what can happen and we only have 2 eyes.
