Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

Yes. If the wrong power lens was placed inside your eye it can be removed and a new one put in. This does, of course, entail all the same risks that you faced with the initial surgery along with some aspects of technical difficulties in safely ex-planting the old lens. That being said the vast majority of cataracts surgeons are highly skilled at this procedure.

Dr. Rick :

However, since you are not even 3 week post op with your first eye and barely one week out from your second surgery I would consul patience at this point. Let things heal up and settle down, perhaps things will improve.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?

Dr. Rick :

Lens exchange surgery can be done at anytime. From what you have told me I would not rush into it right now.
