Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. Did her ophthalmologist tell her what kind of attack or problem happened to her eyes?
Was it an ischemic optic neuropathy? Was it a retinal vein or arteriole occlusion? Was it macular degeneration? Was it an elevated pressure (glaucoma) attack?
Is there any additional information you can give me regarding what may have happened to her?
Ih Sorry Dr. I am not able to aswer those questions. I had better cancel my question . Tks
Don't cancel yet. Maybe we can figure this out together.
How soon after the cataract surgery did she lose vision in that eye?
Was the vision loss sudden (over seconds to minutes) or was it gradual (days) in onset?
Is her vision problem in that eye a generalized decrease in the quality of vision or is she missing an actual portion of her visual field?
Were there any complications in the cataract surgery that you were informed of?
Dr..I believe she had an blocked vein as the Dr told us. The vein in the back of the head leading to the eye. She got askal 38 to help the blockage. (sorry for my bad english). I hope this will help. Tks
Can she recover her full sight?
When someone has a vein occlusion of the vein leading to the eye this is generally a poor visual prognosis. Seeing as how it is 8 months after the incident, I would expect that whatever vision has returned is likely going to be the most vision that you should expect to have return. Unfortunately, these are just devastating diagnoses that cause mostly permanent vision loss.
If she has recovered any useful vision after this event then I think she is doing very well, but I wouldn't expect her to regain her prior vision again.
I wish I could give you a better prognosis, but in this case, I think she is doing pretty good to get some vision back.
