I know others have posted about this, but I would be so grateful for some advice or suggestions. I will detail my experiences in quick reading format and state that I did NOT have cataracts prior to lens exchange. I required 2 eye prescriptions and wanted to be spectacle-free.
January 2017 - had trifocal Carl Zeiss AT Lisa IOL's implanted into both eyes.
Immediately after surgery I had ghosting, giant spider web halo's and loss of visual acuity in low light. These were severe and I was unable to drive at night.
Several months later, the right eye was developing PCO. Vision in that eye was extremely poor.
January 2019 - I visited the surgeon in Prague. He advised he would "polish" the right eye to clean up the cells and advised to carry out an explantation of the trifocal lens in the left, dominant, eye, which he replaced with a monofocal lens, the Alcon Clareon.
Immediately after the lens exchange, vision was crystal clear in that left eye, albeit there was a tiny, pin head size reflection when looking straight ahead, under bright lights, or when sat in the car.
In the right eye with PCO, vision was still poor and PCO became worse.
May 2019 - I returned to Prague to have YAG on the right eye with PCO. I explained to the eye specialist that I was also experiencing a small aberration, of a pin head size blob of light on the bottom lashes of my left, monofocal, eye, which was only present under bright lights and also when sat in the car. She said she would carry out the YAG on that eye, too.
It has been a week since I got back and the trifocal eye has resumed all ghosting, halo's and low visual light acuity, but the cloudiness has gone.
HOWEVER, the monofocal eye now experiences huge starbursts, as long as 20 foot, emanating from car headlights and from other light sources, even the flames of a fire. The small ray of light "blob" I previously saw has now become larger and is present a lot more. It has also shifted position. This is not a "floater".
I have googled and researched as much as I can and I have only seen on this forum a person who had starbursts AFTER YAG. I am absolutely distraught because I cannot drive at night and this limits not only my job capacity, but my quality of life.
WHY would she YAG the clear monofocal eye? Why do I now see starbursts?
WHY is the trifocal lens still seeing halo's, ghosting, etc and will a larger hole done by a 2nd YAG improve them?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
