Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
Doctor DanB : There are a few things which can clause cloudy vision after cataract surgery. The two most common things are a cloudy membrane that forms behind the lens implants or a cloudiness to the cornea. If it is a cloudy membrane forming behind the lens implant than a straightforward and quick laser procedure can help cure this. This should be obvious to your ophthalmologist and a solution should be readily available to you. If it is clouding in the cornea then  the only thing that can fix this is a cornea transplant, another surgery. Does this make sense?

is it at all possible that the transplant was incorrect because i took an eye exam for glasses that did not correct my vision at all. The Doctor was not aware of this as I went directly to the eye exam room where the glasses were corrected. I believe that I have the lens prescription from the failed eye exam..


can I have the inolant taken out and a clear lens installed..

Doctor DanB : It's conceivably possible that the wrong lens was put into your new glasses; it's also possible that the wrong powered lens was placed in the eye. It is possible to take the lens out and replace it with a different lens, but it can be technically more challenging than placing the implant initially.
