Had cataract surgery on one eye August 2018. Thought it was successful though less than satisfied with resulting visual acuity. December auto accident, airbag deployed from steering column. Vision deteriorated noticeably over 3 months, developed double vision looking at traffic lights, more pronounced at greater distance. Surgeon used laser to "clear" the membrane over the lens that had clouded over. Near vision greatly improved, still seeing double (side by side) traffic lights. Today was 3 week follow up. Surgeon is less than helpful, wrote a prescription for glasses. Said follow up in 6 weeks. This visit FIRST time any Doctor mentioned (my) astigmatism. Further announced some retinal issues for the first time. He even said I "might have to live with it". I believe I should be getting a second opinion.
