Lens implant nightmare

by H.S.
(Ellsworth Maine)

Born with cataracts. I had them removed in early childhood. In my twenties, I had implants. By my thirties both were only partially attached - "swinging like a storm door". One fell into my retina requiring a three hour trip to retinal specialists - one to take it out of retina and one to pull it out and put in a new implant. Result was legal blindness in that eye. The other eye can barely see. Now trying to get someone to take that "swinging door" out. And I am only 45!

OOPH! what can I say. SCARY scenario.

I'll be going to an eye clinic in the next week to have an independent assessment of my situation before the doc lasers my eyes to treat the implants that are not adequate. I told him I feel as if the implants are moving at times. "IMPOSSIBLE" he tells me.
I'm getting more and more uneasy about this whole affair.

thanks for your comment.
