How long ago did she have the cataract removed?
surgery/ she is blind in one eye, so she just had surgery on the good eye.
when was the surgery?
two and a half years?
okay, when was the last time she saw her Ophthalmologist?
jan. she cant sit through the tests
he said something like ' we need to keep up the prssure in her eye?"
then I'm not sure how I can help you except to say that there are two possibilities here.
one is that there is another cataract (they do recur in some)
the other is that there is a new or different problem.
either way, without being able to sit for the tests there is no way to know.
has the doctor offered a sedated exam?
no. maybe she needs a new eye doctor?
if there is a pressure problem in the eye this could well explain the problem.
high pressure in the eye is called 'glaucoma', has this been mentioned?
and it might be time to suggest a sedated exam to her current physician.
no mention of glaucoma, she is 'timerol' drops?
this is a glaucoma medicine
what is tht for?
HERE IS A LINK EXPLAINING GLAUCOMA
the medicine decreases pressure in the eye.
what is glaucoma? any remedies?
this is from the link above
glaucoma is a group of eye conditions resulting in optic nerve damage and loss of vision. abnormally high pressure in the eye usually causes this damage
clicking on the link will take you to a good site that explains the disease and how it is treated
the botXXXXX XXXXXne is that she needs to continue to see the eye doctor, if she isn't happy with her current doctor then it would be reasonable to get a second opinion.
thanks, XXXXX XXXXX
