Customer Question

I am a 68 yr old type 2 diabetic who had cataract surg on Aug. 24th. I was told by my eye doctor that I have pigmentation from my iris that stuck to the new lens. I kept telling the surgery center what I was experiencing. First told my eye was still dialated; would get better. I see the edge of the lens. Very concerned. Please help!

Hi there ....

In Diabetics Cataract surgery should be done with lens replacement , even there is some issue with the adjustment of of lens , still Lens should be tried as it improves quality of life with better vision .

So if there is no evidence of Diabetic Retinoipathy then it will be of benefit .

Good luck .

Positive feedback will be appreciated .

Thanks .

What type of cataract surgery did you have.

Clearly you already had a new lens.....

What do you mean by pigment?

I am a double board certified US doctor.

I understand your question, but tell me what this "pigment" is and what the eye doctor said about it.
