Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
so. Let me understand this correctly. With just the affected eye open (the other one tightly closed) you experience triple vision. Also the affected eye looks, to all external examination, normal. Is this correct?
Is there any pain or discomfort in the affected eye? Scars or swelling of the cornea? Recent trauma or infection? Do you have any medical problems such as diabetes?
Hi. Welcome to chat.
The only thing that was diagnoised on examination was a small cateract. There is no pain, scarring, swelling, no trauma or infection, and no diabeties. I do not have diabeties. There is the discomfort of the distorted eye sight that bothers me.
Ok. A cataract, especially a type called a posterior subcapsular cataract, can cause the type of issues you are experiencing. Were you examined by an ophthalmologist or an optometrist?
Good. As you correctly pointed out the only way to remove monocular visual problems due to a cataract is to remove the cataract by surgery.
One thing that could be tried is using drops, such as pilocarpine, to make your pupil small. This might allow you to see through a relatively clear segment of the cataract and mitigate the visual aberrations.
does this make sense to you?
