Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Dr. Rick--I see in repeating the history on my tablet (after my computer froze), I failed to clarify the timeline. The inability of the eyes to work together, which I attribute to my left eye, began about seven years ago after cataract surgery which caused my eye to swell so badly the staff could not view the macula. I also have been u unable to get a vision correction in that eye as well. Three professionals tried various prescriptions, including a prism. The subsequent tries resulted in greater distortion. One prescription led to a brief panic attack because I had no usable backup at that time. T
Dr. Rick--My retinal peel failed to allow my eyes to work together. Because the image in my left eye that had been swollen for six months after cataract surgery is a third larger than the right image, I have hope a replacement of the intra-ocular lens in that eye can improve that prescription. I also recognize the possibility that the six-month swelling may have permanently damaged that eye. The only unusual thing that shows in a photo is a small blurry patch. I'll see my retinal surgeon next week.
