Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
A gentlemen with developmental disabilities for whom I am guardian had cataract surgery about a month ago. On our second follow up appointment I was informed that we were to see a specialist after our appointment. Both physicians were of Asian descent and were difficult to understand. The specialist said something about a "ring" that had fallen into the vitreous had been left in the eye. He did an ultrasound and pointed it out to me. I asked what was to be done and he said don't worry then left the room and I was told to come back in two weeks. I am worried because my ward cannot speak or hear and is unable to tell me if his vision worsens or if he feels pain. Since he is deaf his vision is his only portal to the outside world. Advice and information would be appreciated. Thank you.
I neglected to mention that this procedure was done in a hospital under general anesthesia. It was supposed to be about an hour and took almost 7 hours. The doctor said she could not dissolve the cataract and had to surgically remove it. After the surgery his eye was filled with blood. One of the nurses came out during the surgery and said they were trying to find another doctor to assist. They wouldn't provide any information beyond this. I don't know if they ever got another doctor or not.
Awaiting your answer.
Neither doctor mentioned another surgery. I expect at the next visit they will spring it on me.
No, thanks for your help.
