Hemorrhage after Cataract Surgery

Question: My grandpa had cataract surgery a week ago as still unable to see out of that eye. There is some blood right at the center of his eye and his eye doctor days that is the reason he is still unable to see. I am worried, does this sound normal?

Answer: It is not really possible to understand the reason for your grandpa's difficultly with vision after his Cataract Surgery as it is not obvious what the actual location of the hemorrhage is-inside the vitreous, in the retina or in the macula of the retina indicating the possibility of age related macular degeneration being present. Each of these will impact vision to a different degree. It would be very important to get clarification and a prognosis from your Cataract Surgeon that you are comfortable with. Otherwise, you should seek a second opinion from another Cataract Surgeon
