Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
I wore reading glasses only. I did this surgery to stop wearing them and prevent future cataracts. This was my non-dominant eye. It sees now about the same as before.
I am not using the glass on that eye and it does not happen when I sit and use my computer. It happens when I get out of bed, lean my head forward, turn my head from side to side or make sudden movements. It stops when I hold my head still.
My blood pressure is super low 106/55...it is steadily low. I workout daily and am extremely fit. This was preventative. I did not workout today because of this.
As predicted, far vision is good. Middle is so so and near is awful. I was told that near would only imporove when my muscle began to "wake up" and use the lens. I was given eye exercises to do and I will. For now I am simply not using my reading glasses on that side...I was told not to.
106/55 is NORMAL for me. I have always been like this and DO drink plenty of fluids.
Do you think that its just a co-incidence that this started at exactly 2 weeks post surgery, ie that suddenly I had an inner ear problem the day that my eye muscle starting waking up. Seem strange to me.
Have you ever heard of dizziness being related to the " eye muscle kicking in". Or, for that matter to steroid drops in the eye for 2 weeks?
If not, then I guess I will just wait it out.
slight headache above eye. This is normal I think. My head feels "loggy"...not normal and clear like usual. But I assumed that this was post surgical stuff. No nausea.
Yes, eye pressure was 15 and hence in the normal range. It has been 15 for the last 40 years. It was tested post surgery and was still 15.
Any other ideas or just wait it out?
I think I am back where I started from. I will wait it out and see if it resolves.
Thanks for your help! Unless you can think of anything else, I will press accept.
Oh, one more thing, should I delay the eye exercises until this resolves or just go ahead and do them despite this?
