Common Questions and Answers about Laser surgery after cataract surgery

laser

Can someone who has had laser cataract surgery with the use of the femtosecond laser please describe their experience and the long term results of that procedure. Thank you.
Furthermore, there is no more precise way to surgically correct the vision than laser vision enhancement after cataract surgery. You can safely have LASIK or PRK after cataract surgery to 'fine tune' your vision. I think overall there's a lot of wrong information about laser assisted cataract surgery. It's great, but to imply it's better is wrong. I hope this helps. Best wishes, Timothy D.
Dear Juandj, Usually, one can have laser vision correction after cataract surgery. Seek the care of an eyeMD and have your eyes examined for this. Dr. Feldman Sandy T. Feldman, M.D., M.S.
Can a lens put in after cataract surgery be replaced if damaged during laser procedure?
I had my right eye cataract surgery in April 2010. The posterior capsule developed opacity after a few months. For the past 6 months, every time when I wake up from sleep or open my eyes after closing for a while, there is a transparent screen/curtain which moves up and down as I blink. The reason that I can tell there is a moving transparent curtain is because it s not totally transparent. Sometimes, it looks like glass window after cleaning having some fabric fibre left on it.
This is extremely rare for the IOL to dislocate after yag capsulotomy. Was it dislocated before the yag laser being done? That's more likely. Either way, an IOL may be recentered with a suturing technique. You need to go to a surgeon who is comfortable with this more challenging procedure. Sincerely, Timothy D.
three weeks ago I had cataract surgery. on my first post-op visit, my eye was healing nicely and I had much improved vision. 4 days after surgery I developed extreem light senitivity but additional prednsone drops cleared that up. However with an eye chart check a week later - my vision had deteriorated to where the entire eye chart was a blur and has stayed that way.

Hey Doc, Is there any way by which I can get rid from my spectacles. Even after my cataract surgery, I've to wear glasses for near vision(+3). It is quite depressing bcoz earlier I don't require any glasses for reading purpose but now I've to wear them. My IOL is monofocal (Bosch & Lomb). Well, I read somewhere on internet that IOL takes 1 year for adjustment, so is it possible that may be due to some adjustments, I am not been able to see near things clearly...
It's not unusual that a patient came out with a different Rx that was targeted after cataract surgery. Unless your post-surgery Rx is *extremely* off the chart, your best bet is to correct it with glasses. IOL explantation entails much higher risk as the Forum OD said. Get a second opinion and make a conservative decision.
NO the back wall (extracapsular surgery) is left in place almost 100% of the time in surgery world wide. Taking the entire lens out is almost never done. If the wall becomes cloudy it is safe and painless to open with a yag laser. The percentage of walls that turn cloudy use to be almost 100% now its about 30% and research is being done to keep all from turning cloudy 2. Just backwards. There is almost never a reason not to leave the back capsule wall in place 3.
I was considering laser/corrective surgery prior to this diagnosis. After my cataract surgery would I only need corrective surgery in my left eye? Does one surgery effect the decision regarding the other? The ophthalmologist office was a very business place and so he didn't have time to really walk me through everything. I really want to make an informs decision and information is greatly appreciated.
cataract that has been present from birth. Sometimes people have cataract surgery and after a time the posterior capsule of the natural lens which is left behind turns cloudy. That is called a "secondary" cataract it is "new" and if a problem it is treated with a yag laser capsulotomy. I would suggest you get a third opinon.
Again if your glaucoma and visual fields are stable then you don't really need to have this done. With regard to the targeted power of your eyes after cataract surgery, that is just down to your preference (We are talking about monofocal lens implants here). Many (but not all) short sighted people are used to the shortsighted experience, so their doctors leave them a little shortsighted after surgery. But think about what you would most like to do without glasses after surgery.
Is a cataract refractive surgeon someone who does laser surgery as well as cataract surgery? Thank-you for your good wishes too, Jodie. Sorry for sending another long post. After the surgery, before my vision dropped, it was amazing to wake up and be able to see and make breakfast without any corrective lenses. I could feel my energy and quick movements starting to return. So I'm hoping eventually to be lucky enough to get back to this.
Now I have cataract OD and is 3 months interval good after buckle? Is laser cataract surgery after buckle is best option, with femtosecond laser?? I am -7.50 OS, what should I do with OD, plano or otherwise, surgeon thinks -0.5 and OD thinks -2.5. Thanks for input.
wanted to do a Yag laser three weeks after surgery and PRK, but PRK only after right is done w/Restor and both eyes are stable. I hesitate to do another Restor lens because I may not get good vision with this eye either. I only got 20/40 distance, intermediate and near is blurry. As stated to MedHelp a few days ago, I now feel that I should have just done monofocal lens and used reading glasses.
Dr Hagan For your information, 20 days after my right eye cataract surgery my eyes have the following vision Right eye ( cataract surgery) Sphere -0.75, cylinder -0.25, Axis 145, Add +2.25 ( but I feel more comfortable with +1) Intermediate 6/6 , PD 57/55: Left eye -Sphere -6.25, Cylinder -1.25, Axis 178, Add +2.25, Intermediate C/15. Can I bend over when I do work by now (surgery on 8/4/2010) ? Is there any specific reason ?
Have any of you done cataract surgery? My almost 11 year old APBT has cataracts in both eyes. She is otherwise healthy. I am torn on doing the surgery. She functions well but she wants to go 'all out' all the time which means she runs into a lot of things. Any advice would be welcome!
Is it normal to have severe astigmatism as an after-effect of the surgery? Will delaying laser surgery for a year be a problem? Will my eyes undergo further improvement/degeneration during the next few months?
If I could add a comment to the fine doctor's, I too had floater problem after "routine" cataract surgery that was disregarded and did not seek another opinion til it was too late. If the second opinion is a retinal specialist, it would be most beneficial. I would go asap.
I had cataract surgery in my left eye in November, and also laser correction in my right eye for a wrinkled lens from a previous cataract surgery.. eveything was fine, but in the past few weeks my right eye looks like it's larger or bulging. I had bels palsy on the right when I was young, and normally that eye drooped.. this looks a little freaky, and I am wondering if there is something wrong~~ Thank you for your input.
I had cataract surgery on my right eye, before surgery I had 20/20 vision, never needed glasses, it's been 6 days since the surgery, I'm having trouble seeing, it's like the implant isn't centered right, it's very fuzzy, I keep blinking trying to see better. If I put my head down and look up it becomes clear.Is it possible that the implant isn't percisioned correctly.
After cataract surgery in the right eye my girlfriend experienced vision that was, as she put it, "out of focus". 3 months after the surgery, the doctor performed a laser procedure in that eye. The result is that her vision has not improved, but, now she has the added frustration of light shooting out in all directions like a star. The doctor proposed a second lens added to the eye.
anterior and posterior capsular contraction and opacification are a normal and unavoidable part of cataract/IOL surgery. Yesterday I did 7 laser treatments for people with these problems, some of whom I operated on and some other surgeons. Newer techniques and IOL design has reduced the risk of this problem from 90%+ in the early 80s to about 25-30% now.
and my keratoconic corneas wouldn't do well wit laser on right eye. Before surgery i was myopic both eyes. after i'm right -075-.350x016(right eye) +125-100x170 (left eye)... Add 2 only (OS)... since my left eye has poor vision (intermediate) even with progressive glasses, it could be my mydriasis, or the glasses themselves. Two problems i have, somewhat of an image difference. I plan to have piggyback iol, since i dont really wanna have image difference for the rest of my life.
