Cataract Surgery Right Eye

by Ken
(Newcastle NSW Australia)

Had a painless experience with the surgery 17/09/2012. Aged 63 years. Vision 6/6 next day. I find that if I look to the left I can see the edge of the lens that has replaced the original. Also flashes of light that appears to the right of my right eye under bright situations.

I can't find any information yet if this is normal after 1 day. I will be ringing my doctor tomorrow.

Flashing lights and showers of floaters
by: Anonymous

Had cataract op in one eye on 17th Dec 2012 and got an infection in my eye. Had and have flashing lights in that eye since and mostly showers of floaters. I'm also worried about a shadow when I look to the left.

Same thing

I had an implant on Monday and on day 4, I still have the right side of the right eye sometimes looking at the edge of the lens. It comes and goes with a flicker.

I want to say that, I think this comment section is great! The more we learn about things the better we ALL understand. Thanks

These bad results or situations that people are going through should be disclosed before the first visit to the eye doctor. A Doctor with years experience knows. Do they want to fix mistakes? Do they care enough to really go slow and focused for the best results...I don't think they think it matters.

I would like to know if there is a difference (in quality) between a "high-tech" eye care fascility with the latest and greatest lenses etc. or a old building local eye care fascility??

How can you accuratly do eyes with dark old rooms and old equipment? I guess you could say, it doesn't matter, it's all the same...really? Is this true?

Dear Ken

The symptoms you describe are not unusual after cataract surgery. They sound innocuous, and are likely to be related to light reflection from the implanted intraocular lens. Most likely, you will adapt to this and notice them less and less over time.

I trust that your ophthalmologist has reassured you of the same. However, if a different explanation was given, please do share with the rest of us.

Kind regards,
