I had cataract surgery a month and a half ago and my surgical eye is near-sighted and the good eye is far-sighted. Surgical eye was oozing, swollen, fluid in the eye - black and blue, itchy and redness so I couldn't see. I was on all kinds of steroids and prendisone for the eye. I went for a lense in the left eye and I still can't see. the lens is still blurry and they said that it was as good as it gets. They said I should get the other eye done to rectify the surgical eye. I am so afraid because I have Fuch's dystrophy and a stigmatism in both eyes. I'm afraid that the same thing will happen if I get the other eye done. I could get lasik surgery which will cost $2,900 or get a contact in the surgical eye. I really think this new doctor didn't know what he was doing. His name wasn't on the office door yet. I don''t want to walk around the res of my life not seeing very well. I wen to another doctor 3 years in a row and he wouldn't tell me why I couldn't have cataract surgery so I went to another doctor and this is what I'm facing now. I can't see right out of the two eyes because they are not in sync. I am open to any suggestions you may have.
Thank you! Joanne V.
