Post cataract surgery/worried
I had cataract surgery w/corrective lens August 21, and after two weeks my eye is still blurry, scratchy and uncomfortable. Skin under my eye turned dark black to the middle of my cheek, and that also is still very dark and not back to normal. Visited surgeon twice and he says the surgery went well and my symptoms are not abnormal, but I am concerned because my vision is so poor and reading ability worse than before surgery. Doctor tells me it will improve in time, but I am getting scared because I still can’t see clear enough to drive my car. Last night I noticed that when I cover my other eye, I now see shooting bright light around street lights! Is all this normal after this type of surgery? Several others I’ve spoken to that have had this surgery tell me they see well within days, and none of them had ever heard of getting a black eye. If it truly takes months to see well and adjust to this new lens in my eye as doctor tells me, I can accept that, but I am getting worried. Also, there is a small spot of white at the bottom of my eyeball where there is longer color – doctor says color will return and white spot is medicine he put in the eye and will eventually disappear. I would appreciate hearing from anyone else who might have experienced any of these things after cataract surgery. Thanks for any information you can give me…..
