Foggy Vision After Cataract Surgery?
Good morning, my name is burhan. My question is like this, 2 years ago, my eye cataract surgery has passed after 2 times, my eyes are foggy, and it looks like my cataract is back again. love for your time
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Cataract is a clouding of the lens that causes complaints in the form of a sharp decrease in vision. Cataracts are most often associated with the process of lens degeneration in patients over the age of 40 years (senile cataract). Generally sufferers complain of vision decreases slowly as covered in smoke or foggy.
Cataract surgery is done by removing the cloudy lens and then replacing it with an artificial lens through several methods. The artificial lens cannot naturally experience turbidity, so the cataract will not reappear after surgery.
However, the lens capsule that keeps the lens position in place can experience turbidity over time. This condition is known as capsular opasification which can occur in about 25% of patients after undergoing cataract surgery. Symptoms can be similar to the initial complaint of cataracts, namely foggy vision. Therapy in these conditions one of them by the laser method.
For now, if sharp eyesight continues to diminish, you should do further evaluation with an ophthalmologist. The doctor needs to do a direct eye examination to assess the structure of the eye including the lens to determine the cause of the complaint and plan for further treatment.
That's all, hope you can help.
