@lisalucier Yes, I did have YAG done, I had to wait because of my condition, once I had it, I was able to see!! It was wonderful 🙂

@abelew I can only explain the first and last; PCO stands for Posterior Capsule Opacification, during the removal of the lens for cataract surgery, the sack which holds the lens gets dark, like frosted glass (opacification), the best way to make it clear again is doing a YAG (I don't know what stands for), which is a procedure using laser to clear the sack allowing the light to come through again. Maybe other can explain what is 'cataract sx'. Kind regards, Isabel

@lisalucier 100% agree that PCO is corrected very quickly with laser. In my case, I had to wait a bit, as my very particular case was very delicate as doctors needed to make sure that my retina was totally okay. But if you don't have retina problems, it is a marvelous thing to have done, you will notice the light come in as soon as the laser treatment starts 🙂

@mkjames I also have gone through what you have gone through, I had no vision on my right eye for 5 years and I still partial vision on my left eye. I also found that gadgets such as readers, magnifying glasses, sunglasses, watches, and other tools very helpful from http://www.miamilighthouse.com/.

@tennisgolf Sorry to hear about your experience, I also suffer from dry eyes and as you, they got worse after cataract surgery. I use herbal tea bags warmed in water, and I find them very soothing. All the best, Isabel

@ladybugmg That happened me to too, it is called PCO, also removed by laser. Thank God for that!
