Customer Question
Had a crystal lens implant...
Had a crystal lens implant put in my L eye and lasik on my right. I had a reading contact in the L eye prior to surgery for mono vision. One month after surgery and the vision in my L eye is not improving with exercises. The implant was the most expensive lens but I'm not seeing results. Healthy 52 year old male, no medical issues or meds. What should I expect or what can I do to improve vision ?

What visual problems are you experiencing?

What type of exercises are you doing?

What type of doctor prescribed these exercises?

Were there any complications before, during or after your cataract surgery?

Please provide the lens data off of the card you were given.

What is your current best corrected vision in each eye?

What does your surgeon have to say about all of this?

Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?

This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.

The vision with the new lens is not improving.
Reading paragraphs that they provided me 4 x per day for 5 min each time.
The surgeon that placed the lens in my eye.
No complications everything else has been perfect.
Not given a card.
Not sure about vision in each eye. 2020 in the lasik eye
Surgeon said will just take time, keep doing exercises.
Great health and no meds.
Eye Doctor: Dr. Rick, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

Thank you for that additional information.

What are the visual issues you are having in your operated eye?

You must have been given a small card with all the information about your implant. It fits in your wallet. Everyone gets one by law.

You can ask your surgeon for that information if you have misplaced your card. She will also be able to tell you what your best corrected visual acuity is in your operated eye at this time.

This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
