I have to admit that I am a very frustrated lady these days. I had cataract surgery not long ago and I am developing what they called "secondary cataract". I see more and more blurry. So, I have to wait untill January 12,2017 until the ophtalmologist will blast that stuff with laser. Until then, I have to put up with it and that is why I am a very frustrated lady right now. Anyone here having that problem?

@marlina That's so true. I know it can't be much fun for you. I'm dreading the day I need cataract surgery.

@marlina I can imagine how frustrating it is to have gone through the surgery and still have issues, but soon it will be corrected and perfect sight restored.

Can they guaranty that after the 'blast' the problem won't come back? I have to say you are the only person who I know with this problem after cataract surgery. Sorry.....I can imagine how frustrated you are.

Apparately, the percentage of people having this is between 5 and 30%. It depends where I look on the internet. My own doctor told me that I was one out of 3. NOT sure about that.

I have not had that problem, but I do know that I have a friend who is developing a cataract under another one. It must be rough.

My eyesight is diminishing to the point where I need glasses. Based on what my ophthalmologist recommends, I need digital progressive lenses, which unfortunately my vision insurance doesn't cover. So I will have to pay out of pocket for them, which will cost me anywhere from $400-$500. Not money I want to spend right now with the holidays upon us. So, most likely, I will wait until I get my tax return sometime in March or April before buying the glasses. I will just continue to be blind until then! haha Merry Christmas Marlina!

@moffittjc The trouble is that I think they were not adjusted properly.

@marlina no, he was seeing floaters and discovered he had a detached retina, it took almost a year to get his whole sight back and working. Thankfully he called the doctor immediately so it was fixable.

They call it "second cataracts" but it is not exactly that. Yes, it does happen unfortunately.

Posterior Capsule Opacity However, in about 20 percent of patients, the posterior portion of the capsule becomes hazy some time during cataract surgery recovery or even months later, causing PCO. Posterior capsule opacification occurs because lens epithelial cells remaining after cataract surgery have grown on the capsule. In some cases, if the condition progresses significantly, your vision may be worse than it was before cataract surgery.
Find out which drugs make the list and if you are at risk for a cataract surgery complication.

I feel for you and the problem you're having with your eyes. I hope after your next procedure things are rectified.
