Re: [IP] cataract problems?

Hello Ashley,
It isn't fair to really compare healing times on the two eyes.  Very minor 
differences in the procedures can make a difference in healing times.  For 
example, if 1 lens is harder, physically, than the other lens, it means the 
eye goes through more "trauma" (which surgery is) to get that cataract out 
and that can prolong the healing time.  Sometimes the surgon will use a 
visco-elastic goo-like substance to help stabilize things during the 
procedure and that can prolong the healing time.  5 days out from the surgery 
isn't time enough to say how things will go.  It is very normal for things to 
be blurry still at this point.  Until just a few years ago, you still would 
not be able to see with that eye, much less be able to describe things as 
As for the stronger reading glasses, it sounds like yu might have been 
nearsighted before the surgery, so things up close were easier to see with no 
correction.  Now that you have the new lenses inside you eye, that dynamic 
has changed.  The doc probably is trying to make to see clearly at a 
distance, which would mean that you would need stronger reading glasses.
Hope that helps!
