I had cataract surgery in march and have had quite a few problems since. In looking over my records I see on January 6th th Dr states that my cataracts
are "small and not a problem", on February 3rd records state "early cataract starting to develop". On my next visit the Dr asked me if I have problems with night driving and I answered yes, but I always have (since age 16 and I am now 52). He sent me to his opthamologist on March 2nd, she states that my vision was "20/70 in each eye best corrected to 20/50 right eye and 20/60 left eye. Compound astigmatism in right eye, simple myopia
in left eye, presbyopia
in both." She "recommends a recheck in 6 months."
I went back to see the original Dr on March 24th to follow up on the eye exam and he told me at that time that my cataracts were "blocking the retinal view internally and this is becoming dangerous" Outpatient treatment should be "simple, safe, and as successful as possible to restore vision to her maximum potential. New glasses
did not improve vision and may be a waste of money until after the blockage is removed".
The problem is that I have triple vision in my left eye and double in my right. I have had YAG treatment in both eyes to no effect, I have also had 2 pairs of eyeglasses made with minimal help. I am not able to drive or work (my job requires fine vision i.e ABG's, IV's and medication draws). I can not get my original Dr to see me, he said that I simply need another pair of glasses and that sometime a person has worse vision after cataract removal and lens
I have made an appointment with another eye specialist but I am wondering if it is possible for a cataract to vastly develop form "no concern" to a "danger" in 2 months without any injury, medications, or underlying health conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes?
