I just came across this exchange and thought I'd update you. They found that the lens implant in that eye was rubbing against something and that was causing the release of blood cells in the eye. So, in November, they removed the lens in the OR and right now I have no lens and the clouding is completely gone. Amazingly, I have a lot of vision in that eye without a lens and we're working on what to do now. They want to avoid another implant for various reasons. So far, using a contact lens seems to work and gives me great reading vision, which is what I want. When I'm a lot older can I still insert the contact? Don't know. Most people my age have stopped using their contacts, so I'm starting when most people have stopped.
