Hello, I’m sorry to hear that, but you’re in good company. I had the surgery for preventative closed angle glaucoma four years ago. I, too, am left with severe (to me it’s severe) visual disturbances…glare, prisms. I went for two more opinions and both surgeons said I was high risk, which I do believe. My initial surgeon whom I really Liked, points the laser At the 12 o’clock position. However my research said that pointing the laser at the 3 or 9 o’clock position results in fewer complications. So, I went to a glaucoma surgeon who performed the surgery at the 3 and 9 and I am left with this terrible side affect. Maybe my first doctor was correct. Anyway it’s too late and I’ll never know. The surgeon who performed my laser procedure never told me of the side effect, and he will not listen to me about having this horrific glare since the surgery was done.

Below is an article between Ophthalmologists at a round table discussion. I found it very informative.

some more about me; have been farsighted since 2.5 years old, had lasik for my farsightedness and astigmatisms in 2002. I am in glasses again, but not a strong prescription as prior to that.

I can definitely relate the glare with windows from inside. I’m always bothered by it unless I can’t get away from the source, such as when I watched my daughter play a softball game on a lighted ball field at night. It was quite distracting.
