Disastrous cataract surgery

by Daniel S Windell

I originally had a cataract in my right eye. This was removed in 2020, but that left me with a large imbalance between the strength of my eyes. The surgeon had been over-zealous, without my consent. The solution was to do my other eye. He made the same error again, leaving me with a large difference in strength of my eyes. I believe I have monovision, which my brain cannot adjust to. I can now no longer drive, and everyday life is a nightmare. I have photophobia, dry eyes, and I am unable to focus on things. I regret having had this done, because it has destroyed my life. I am still trying to find a solution. It is the worst thing that has happened to me in a long time.
