My mom is a 66 year-old, a smoking woman for about ~40 years.
– No high glucose.
– Usually with a low blood pressure (normal).
– High self making cholesterol, Treatment of pills.
– Usually a healthy person.
On 29.6.17 she passed a cataract surgery and only after about 3 weeks, she started to see clearly.
during these 3 weeks, she felt some itchings but with no pain. the doctor that made the surgery said that everything is OK.
she also asked for another opinion from a specialized doctor and also he told her that everything is OK.
After about 2 month from the surgery, SUDDENLY, she lost her vision in the In the operated eye.
she said that she felt some dizzy and then got totally blind in one eye.
we took her to the emergency room, then she passed a CT brain , neurological tests, eco test ect.
mean while, after some hours, she started to see only silhouettes, until now.
The doctor’s diagnostic is that she passed a “mini stroke” since he saw an obstruction in the retina’s blood vessels
and she also smoke a lot…
We have two questions:
1. what can be done in order to make her see in the eye again.
2. can it be due to the surgery? i know that everybody told that there no relations, but to much coincidence make me wander…
