Pain after cataract surgery

by Eve C
(Hollister, MO. USA)

I am a 66 year old female. I had cataract surgery on my right eye on Sept 30 , 2015 it is now Nov 20, 2015 and I still have eye pain in my right eye that keeps me awake at night. When I wake up my right eye is in a shadow that finally will focus after about 5 minutes then I don't experience it again until I wake up the next morning. However the eye pain in the eye I had surgery on is constant and the shadow when I wake up is scary. Anyone else had this experience? I had LASIK surgery about 20 years ago and had very high myopia ( 20/400) so I was a complication from the start and my vision is now 20/100 in my right eye, was corrected to 20/30 before cataract surgery.. I have double vision also. This is all very frustrating and of great concern.

I hope you contacted your doctor. That doesn't sound like it's something you should be experiencing. I have had severe dry eye since my surgery in October 2014 and despite the several doctors and three different hospitals in two states that I have gone to for relief, I am still experiencing a great deal of discomfort. You should definitely follow up on your problem. I don't think cataract surgery is as easy as we are led to believe. I wish I could be of help, because I know the scare that you must be experiencing from what I've been through. Good luck!
