My IOLs are showing a changing Rx 10 years after surgery

by Kent

Ten years ago, I experienced blunt trauma cataracts from a violent ski injury which rendered me unconscious. Cataracts developed in both eyes. I then had IOL replacement surgery and due to the surgeon's mistake, both IOLs rendered me far-sighted by about 2 diopters. For the last 10 years, I had to wear glasses to drive and use my camera. But just recently, during the last 3 months, my vision has become perfect in my right eye and almost perfect in my left eye. I passed my recent eye exam at the DMV for both eyes, without glasses. This is great, though perplexing. I hope it doesn't continue and I wonder if this will continue into myopia. If there's an explanation, I'd like to hear it.
