Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi, I'm 41 years old male. I've just had a Lasik surgery on my Right eye about 6 months ago. It was performed by Dr. Boutros at the Eye Center. Last week I've just come back local branch center for regular checkup. I don't know why my O.D checked both of my eyes. Both of my eyes were excellent that morning before she used a super bright light to look into my eyes. When I got home, I've still had a very glare feeling in my eyes, specially my non-surgery (Left) eye. I thought it would go away soon, but it got worse for my left eye. After couple days, the glare feeling become very sensitive to sunlight. I've tried to make another appointment with different O.D to get second opinion and find out what happened to my left eye, but all O.D's were on vacation. So I ended up seeing the same O.D again. This time she looked inside my Left eye more thoroughly and took pictures of my eyes. She said she didn't see anything wrong with my eyes. I then went home and realized that my left eye even got worse. Now I can't read on computer screen with my left eye (it's used to be my reading eye), and I can't see my face on the mirror with my Right eye close. When I step outside the house, even with dark sunglasses after couple minutes my Left eye starts seeing big bright white cloud as if you look direct at the sun. I'm feeling like my left eye become blind soon. Can you please tell what happens to my poor eye and please advise me what I should do now? Thank you in advances.
Dr recommend me to keep my left eye for reading
let me run down to get the record
I think it stated: -1.75
it seems to get worse after she had the bright light into my eye,
no pain or redness at all
I can see a little bit better at night
after wake uup
but that vision still not as clear as I had before the eye exam
the checkup exam were:
and yesterday 06/26/13
yes, and it's getting worse now
no, not at all
yes, and she said it's normal
actually, she checked it yesterday
yes, a small blue circle light
just yesterday though
couple days ago, I could read the computer screen
oh, sorry, it dark
couple days ago, I could read the computer screen barely, but now it's totally white
about 18 inch now
yes, but the words seem glare
and get dotted or cut
not really clear though
I really don't know, but it looked yellowish or brown to me.
so you think I should wait for it goes away before seeking for further diagnostics though
you don't think the light she used really hurt my eye internally though?
I guess I would rather wait because now I'm scared of bright light into my left eye
By the way, do you happen to know any experience O.D in Northern VA that you would recommend me if I'd would like to seek for help later on?
I've read couple review that there were couple people seemed to have similar problem like me, it made me a little bit afraid of left eye sudden goes blurry
