Thank you Dr. Rick for answering my questions and concerns regarding fogginess n vision (after cataract surgery) and laser procedure. To reaffirm, the doctor did say after my last exam that results from eye charts/test/exams my vision was @ 20/30 - and while that implies I should be able to see better (decent) - The hazy-ness is leaving me feeling 'blinded' (not blind - not as good as I want/need). I do really appreciate your insight on when Yag laser should or might be considered. Your opinion seems to be in correlation with my opthamologist. Hence, this is why he has not yet discussed this option in detail (laser) as it is too early to give it consideration. Additionally, my doctor did indicate corneal edema...i.e., swelling? He suggested OTC Muro 128 eyedrops to improve this. I use these drops intermittantly throughout the day (maybe 4 - 5 times dy - 1 drop each application). IF it is improving/helping with the swelling, it is doing it Slow. I am also on Prolensa 0.07% drops taken 1 a day (up to four weeks) and I am using (as prescribed) Prednisolone AC 1% - 1 drop a day for next week. (This medication was used 4 x day week one, 3 x day week 2 and now 1 time a day week 3) weening (steriod???) After this week, I will no longer be taking the Prednisolone. Are there ANY OTHER drops (RX or OTC) that may produce better results if indeed I am experiencing cornea edema? Perhaps, the longer I use the Muro 128 - I will see more improvement? Many people who receive cataract surgery claim to see clearly IMMEDIATELY, thus I am sure is contributing to my anxiety. Reassurance of hope that my sight will improve is more than I have right now (from current doctor). Speculative, he knows this: I Don't. Thank you again for your insight. I appreciate any information you may be able to provide.
