Patient With Toric Lens Implant, Corneal Transplant and YAG Laser Treatment
November 2, 2010
In March, 2010 I had a Toric Lens implanted in my left eye. Since I have Fuchs Dystrophy, I also needed to have a corneal transplant, which I had done in May,2010. My vision did not improve as well as the doctor expected. I still am experiencing blurry vision. My vision went from 20/70 to 20/50. I had the YAG laser treatment done in Sept. 2010.
Still have had little change in the clarity. I am on 2 different drops. One in the morning and one in the evening.
I am reluctant to have the other eye done which also is in need of cataract and corneal replacement. What is the length of time after surgery that one can expect to see more clearly so that I can have the other surgery? The doctor said that everything looks great with my corrected eye. I think that the doctor is baffled too. Can you please give me some input? Is this a relatively common problem? How soon after one surgery does the other eye usually get done?
