A strange one,

Postby thebryans » Sun Jan 27, 2013 1:47 am

Well its really strange just over 6mths ago had my eyes tested and they were really please as no change in near sight but improvement in distance,
A couple of months later I started to have vision problems with my left eye, left it a bit to see if it was just a fluctuation or something be got even worse, so could hardly see,
So off I went again to the optician, and was not at all prepared for what he had to say, In a 6mth period I had developed a really bad cataract in my left eye and one growing in my right eye, :pull-hair: So within 2 weeks have been to the eye specialist at a private hospital ( via NHS ) where was told I have a very agressive form of cataracts, usually seen in people over 80yrs, heavy longtime steroid takers, severe diabetic's or a few other serious illnesses, wow, shock horror, scared the sh*t out of me, and having my op in 3 weeks time on my left eye, then soon as its healed the right one done, plus he has written to my gp to ask for a full 100% medical test done on me, to find the cause, as its worried him,
Now I am very very worried, and dreading the op, as only just getting over surgery on my hand which I was awake thro ** can't have general anesthetic due to sleep apneoa )
so need lots of :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :grouphug:
anyone else heard of this as do not think they can blame fibro for this one

Sorry no haven't heard of it but good that you are getting it treated so quickly.

The only comfort I can give is that a good friend who damaged her eyes through use of steroid eye drops GP prescribed for another illness) recently had cataract surgery. She went from being registered partially blind to having a great improvement in her sight (seems they put in a totally new lens in when sorting out the cataract so her vision was even better than before cataracts) .... so much she has been able to stay on a work etc.

She said it was a bit surreal, as all of the surgeries are done under local anesthetic but the nurse who sat beside her had a great line in distraction chat, so she didn't really notice what was happening after the first few minutes. I think she said it only took about 20 minutes but I could be wrong.

good luck and hope it all works out for you

My mum had cataracts removed from both eyes last year and her sight is perfect now ( no problem with procedure).. I think that was they start to develop it can happen quite quickly. I know it is done by local anaesthetic (I had laser treatment under local so I can vouch for no pain during procedure). Explain your worries to you named nurse and she will talk you through the procedure. Good luck. :hugs:
