Pain in eye after cataract surgery 1 year

Posted by sunny1971 @sunny1971, Apr 28 7:11am

Hi friends has anyone had pain behind the eye 9 to 12 months after the cataract surgery? My husband still going down a dark road fighting the pain in his eyes he’s been to so many physicians no one seems to know what it is they all say his eye and cataracts are fine the surgery went well he had a expensive cataract lens put in which is called a panoptic, he feels the doctor did not place it properly or that is too strong for his eye. He’s been on drop after drop five or seven different drops sometimes they help most of the time they don’t.

Hi – I looked back into your discussions, and see that your husband has been suffering for many months following his cataract surgery. You mentioned last year doing a consult at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute – did he see a neuro-ophthalmologist or post-cataract specialist there? If so, what was their conclusion?
Did his extreme photosensitivity resolve?

He did go to palmer, They did all the tests and the doctor said to go back to the surgeon there was nothing that he could find photo sensitivity is something he has to live with unless it disappears it had lightened up a little bit and now he has pain in the eye I don’t know if it’s stress related or what he went back to the surgeon twice they found nothing they said come back in a year and that they want him to see an allergist, he does have sinus issues and I think that is affecting his high

Well, that is certainly a possibility – when I had chronic sinus issues, I had headaches, eye and tooth pain – the ENT finally figured out the source – worth checking it out!
