Eyesight Issues

Eyesight Issues

Hi to all just would like to know if anyone is having eyesight issues. I had cataract surgery last year but my eyes are terrible with grit and water and discomfort since then. Heard it could be medications. Thanks for your caring always.

Sorry, but I just now saw this post. I have also had cataract surgery in both eyes with no problems, but have since learned that I have macular degeneration; the wet kind in my left eye and the dry kind in my right eye. I get a shot in m left eye to slow the growth, but what I really wanted to know is if anyone ever told you to use eye drops? It sure seems to me that might help with your problem, although since I'm no doctor I don't know that for a fact. You might want to ask your doctor about that when you see him. I use them twice a day, but was warned NOT to use Visine. Good luck.

Inhaled corticosteroids are associated with the need for cataract surgery, but are not associated with the types of outcomes you're experiencing. I think I'd find a good ophthalmologist (not the one who did the surgery) and have a complete eye examination.
