I had surgery last year to remove cataracts. My left eye was done first and I developed serious negative dysphotopsia. My right eye was subsequently done, but instead of hanging the lense on hooks (as my doctor explained it), she made an incision and inserted the lense. I have no issues with this eye. As for the left, I constantly feel as though there is something in my eye as with pink eye and it constantly tears. I saw another doctor today who told me twice that he would be able to remove the lense currently in there and fix it the way the right eye was done, but now he noticed dryness in this eye and put me on drops for a month. Is dryness really preventing the surgery?
Dr. Dan B. : Hello and thanks for your question. While dryness shouldn't prevent it ultimately, each surgery has the potential to worsen dryness.
Dr. Dan B. : For that reason, if the dryness isn't improved before another surgery it may get much worse and inhibit your vision further.
Dr. Dan B. : Does this make sense?
