Has anyone had the crystal lens implants?
I have had the crystal lens implants when I had cataract surgery. I wanted the best so I opted for the crystal lens to be implanted instead of the older kind that was always used. Also the optomologist said " I probably would not have to wear glasses anymore." I might have to have readers but a mild prescription. Well, this December it will be a year and my vision is worse than before I had my eye surgery. They kept telling me it would improve. It never did. I was using readers before +200. Now I use only +150 but the far away vision is completely gone!!!! My vision before was 40/20 right eye and left eye 30/20. Now, I cannot see a thing without my glasses. I am not sure what My vision is as one Crystal lens was to be for close up vision (which is o.k) but the far away lens for my vision is AWFUL. The first thing in the morning-on go my glasses and the last thing I do at night is to take them off. I am so disappointed. Should I ask him to do the implant over or can they even do that? This Dr. was recommended, but I have found out he does not communicate to me well. I am also afraid to go to another Dr. as he may not want to clean up another Dr.'s mess. This operation cost me 2,000 for each eye beyond what my insurance would pay as this was a new procedure and insurance would not pay for it. I feel took, and disappointed. Has anyone encountered this problem before? What should I do? Any advise???? I can say that the world is much brighter than when I had cataracts, but it alot more blurry. Am I asking for too much? What an expensive lesson!:-(
