Question: I had cataract surgery and a ReSTOR® Lens Implant placed in my right eye 3 weeks ago and I have a problem. My vision is still blurry and I have a dull achy pain in my eye and temple area. When can I expect this to improve? I'm afraid to have my other eye done for fear that these symptoms will occur again.
Answer: One would typically expect you to be comfortable and see pretty well 3 weeks after a Cataract Surgery and Lens Implant operation. It would be important for you to schedule an appointment with your Cataract Surgeon so that he or she can evaluate the status of your surgery and determine the cause of the ache-which may or may not be related to the Cataract operation and/or the Lens Implant. If after having a follow-up examination with your Cataract Surgeon you are still dissatisfied with the explanation and outcome, then consider scheduling a second opinion consultation with the best Cataract Surgeon you can find in your area in order to get a resolution to the problem.
