Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, Dr. Rick, I had cataract surgery one month ago for right eye and half month ago for left eye. Both eyes have serious starburst and also have very long light streaks in two directions. I can't dirve completely at night. My vision is good at daytime. My Dr. said laser surgery could treat light streak, but starburst would remain. Do you know the reasons for these problems and there are any methods that can treat these problems? Except light problems, I found both eyes had several small black floaters after surgery. I have had floaters for several years, but these black floaters are definitely different from before, thery are completely black. For the worse, I found a big one since yesterday. When this big black speck floats in my vision and I look at computer, the diameter of the speck is about 0.5 centimeter, looks like it consists of several debris. I haven't talked to my Dr. about black floaters because I concerned the light streak problem and forgot it. Are these floaters dangerous for my eyes? My next pointment with my Dr. is in one and half week. Is it OK I talk to my Dr. about floaters in next appointment?
1.I just know they are standard lens.
3. Prednisolone Acetate Ophthalmin Suspension USP for left eye. already stop to use any eye drops fot right eye.
5. I don't know what type of laser surgery. My Dr. means the capsules that hold lens have folds and laser surgery can cut these folds.
Thanks a lot for your help!
If possible, could you please help me for two more questions when you are available?
1. I know there are high ratio of people with cataract surgery will have "second cataract". They need laser surgery to treat it. If laser surgery treats my light streak problem now, is it still possible for me to have "second cataract" or not? It seems that the principles of two surgeries are similar.
2. Why are the floaters I got this time completely different from those I got before? The floaters I got before surgery look like spider-web, transparent coagulated liquid. They are still a little transparent, like mist. But the floaters I got this time are deep dark specks, completely nontransparent.
Wish the new drug removing floater come early.
