Problem after cataract surgery and after Yag treatment
by Charles Graham
I had cataract surgery on my left eye, after which I had rods going through every bright light at night. My doctor suggested wait awhile to see if it would improve. After 1 year, no change so she did the Yag treatment. Now it's worse. The rods are gone but every bright light has long spikes surrounding it like a fireworks burst. The brighter the light, the longer the spikes extend outward. Doctor is lost as to why this occurred or any solution. Searched online for suggestions but no results. Will not have surgery on my other eye for fear I may get same condition. I'm lost... I'm 75, in very good health, never even needed glasses except for reading small print. No problem during the day but can't drive at night because of oncoming bright headlights.
