At night all lights have a high glare/stare effect,as I had with the cataract before it was removed. Indoors it is the same a star effect.
This can be due to increased scarring of the membrane behind the lens
implant. This commonly happens after routine cataract surgery and can be accelerated after subsequent surgery. When you see your doctor again, as him if the glare is due to a "PCO".
The glare can also be due to light scattering through the gas bubble. It should be nearly gone by now.2) If I look at the TV screen with my left eye (normal eye) and the close that eye and look at the same tv,same distance,same channel, same position,screen seems smaller and further away and moved right.
This can be due to a change in the refractive error of the eye. The scleral buckle is a plastic band that cinches around the middle portion of the eye. The pressure exerted can sometimes cause the eyeball to shorten or elongate, thus causing causing things to look smaller and further away.
The image being moved to the right can be due to two things. Your eyes can be misaligned causing this double vision
. The scleral buckle is passed underneath the eye muscles
. Because of the close contact, it can sometimes cause misalignment of the two eyes. Another possibility could be the retina itself has moved. The goal of the surgery is to redrape the retina back against the wall of the eye.
I have additional questions -continued when driving and using my right eye only ,depth perception ,lane markers road shoulders etc. are not where they seem to be. Side vision not improved all that much.
Depth perception using one eye is definitely different. This is a something that your brain has to adjust to. It is important to know your limitations and drive carefully. As the other eye heals from the surgery, then you should regain your depth perception and binocular vision again.
Will this return to normal? As a matter of fact can I expect a return to normal (corrected) vision?
It is difficult to say how much that eye will return to normal. It is encouraging that your vision was 20/40 even with a gas bubble. It is important to ensure the gas is all gone, perform a YAG capsulotomy if there is scarring present behind the lens implant, and recheck your glasses prescription.
