Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
JACUSTOMER-inx73fld- :

yes, i am now

Doctor DanB :

I'm here now; I'm sorry I had to step away from my desk for a time. Are you still available?

JACUSTOMER-inx73fld- :

yes

Doctor DanB :

In my experience as a cataract surgeon, it definitely IS unusual to have a blood clot in the eye that obscures vision, especially three weeks after surgery. How long has the blood clot been there? Did it develop immediately after surgery?

JACUSTOMER-inx73fld- :

Yes, the next day. I was told this would be a "no blood surgery procedure" cause I am on cumidin for Afib problem. Was told not to worry, and do not change my meds.

Doctor DanB :

Do you know if this blood clot is improving significantly?
