Causes Of Visual Impairment After The Installation Of Artificial Lenses?
I was in May yesterday after planting the lens / phakic, and this morning I went to sleep, suddenly the eyes that the lens park couldn’t make because there was a shadow covering my cornea, why is that? Do I need another surgery?
Hello Nur Diana,
Installation of artificial lenses or intraocular lens implantation is a procedure performed to correct refraction and is also commonly performed in cataract operations. Intraocular lenses are usually made of polymethyl methacrylate, silicone, acrylic, etc. The lens can be placed in the front eye chamber or in the lens capsule (in cataract surgery, the opaque eye lens is removed then replaced with an artificial lens).
Lens mounting surgery usually takes about 15 minutes. After surgery the patient will usually be observed and given education about medicines and treatments while at home, after which the patient can be discharged. Patients are given gauze and plastic blinders to prevent the eyes from dirt and dust. Patients are required to keep their eyes protected from water. Must not bow, straining, lifting heavy for a while. Patients must use eye drops that have been given according to the rules. Patients are educated to come for controls for eye examinations according to the specified schedule.
The initial complications that can occur after an intraocular lens installation procedure include pain in the eye, blurred vision, watery eyes, allergy to the drops given, subconjunctival bleeding, increased eyeball pressure, opacification of the cornea, lens dislocation (lens shifting position), eye infection. Complications that can occur later include macular edema, retinal detachment, turbidity in the posterior capsule of the eye lens, lens dislocation.
In your case, to determine the cause it must be examined directly by an ophthalmologist. Need surgery again or not depends on the cause that causes your vision to blur.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
