Still having trouble with my eyes. After having cataract surgery the doctor put the wrong lens in my left eye. I had laser surgery 2 weeks ago to correct my vision. A contact lens is placed in the eye to protect the cornea from the eye lid until it healed. The doctor removed the contact too soon and I experienced the worse pain that I have ever had for 12hours. I was out of town and had to see another doctor. He put another contact on my eye, and the pain stopped immediately. It was removed 4 days later and I had no pain. Now I can not see up close without putting what I am looking at without placing the object 6 inches from my eyes. I am holding my laptop up 6 inches from my eyes at this moment. I will be absent until I can see again, if I ever do. Never have laser surgery.

Cataracts were removed in October. They remove the lens in your eyes and replace them with artificial lens. The doctor put the wrong lens in my left eye, tried to correct it with laser surgery, which messed it up further. Broke the gel loose in my right eye which floats around and blurrs my vision.

you deserve a better new year... billy, I'm no expert but you might get your

blood sugar tested . w/ a real suppression test or a1c 3m average

diabetes is one of the most under diagnosed medical conditions and it's

treatable. (type one and type two.)

this is an disease that directly affects the ability to ' focus up close and distant '

might be worth your while. adult discovery usually does not require shots,

and is common to treat with an pill or two a day . adult slow or late onset

is called type two. type one - I believe is at birth and you would already know

this most likely . meds for this are cheap too. your still healing- give it some

time.

OMG BILLY I AM SO SORRY TO HEAR THAT!

The exact same thing happened to a coworker and he ended up having to use a magnifying glass just to use his computer and he eventually lost his job because of it. Horrible!

No chance of making things right? Sue them and make them fix it? No?

I'll pray for you partner. Take care!

the reason I suggest an co- condition is that you look too young for

cataract surgery. ( I always thought the best eye surgeons did one eye , than

waited several weeks for an result before doing the other.)

all laser surgeries.
