Should I consider muscle surgery? It was interesting: about 7 months after vitrectomie the ophthalmologist was ready for muscle surgery. A that moment the retina specialist suggested I have cataract surgery first. 2-3 months after cataract surgery all of a sudden the ophthalmologist recommended glasses vs. surgery. In addition he told me that I am boderline between surgery or treatment with glasses for double vision. I am not very happy with glasses. I am thinking back and forth what to do at the age of 74 but very active lifestyle, skiing, hiking, living at 10,000' and even with glasses it takes a lot of effort to look into the world.
I would appreciate if you could comment to this question: yes or no for muscle surgery.Thank you.
Comment: yesterday justanswer send me automatically to another doctor after 15'.
I was very satisfied with your answer and I understand what your functions are. It's good to hear an additional inforamtion, especially if your own doctor does nto talk a lot. I paid already, but the other doctor, due to the fact that your 15 minutes had expired and Just Answer transferred me to this other doctor. Again, I liked your information a lot but don't know if I have to pay again?
I have no additional questions and will see both doctors for retina and the ophthalmologist again, also for cataract surgery follow-up. I will definitely discuss muscle training even at the age of 74. Medicine discovers that even older people might improve conditions. I am only concerned, that my brain will get mixed up, in case the strabismus should change, glasses remain the same, etc. But I will write down all these questions and continue with my present doctors and be more demanding in getting answers. Thanks again. Helga Klepp
