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?

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!

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.
