Hi Doc, You asked how old I am. I am 72 years old, sir. The starburst and the glare has improved since my yag surgery 9 months ago. With a divided highway the problems is not problematic. On a two lane street at night, the feeling is Unconfortable, to say the least.
The beams shoot out across my lane and I have to look very closely to make sure there are no pedestrians behind the beams of light. I had the cataract surgery, The glare is severe enough for me to be unhappy about the result. What are you telling me about getting a second Yag procedure. You suggested Alphagan, instead of another Yag surgery? I read that a too small hole will cause glare, You are stating that a too large hole will cause glare. How does getting another yag procedure add up , with what I have told you so far? I just can't get my head around the fact that Bauch and Lomb reps say there is no glare associated with this particular lens, The doctor says there is no problem, I am feeling uncomfortable with all this, to say the least. Please give me your best guess as to why I have glare and starbursts at night. P.S. I am very grateful for your time and kind attention.
Did you manage to solve the problem with starbursts after YAG?
I had YAG done on both eyes last week. One eye had PCO, the other did not. The eye with PCO has a tri focal lens. The other eye has a monofocal lens.
The eye specialist performed YSG on the monofocal eye because I mentioned to her that I had a small "blob" type reflection in that eye, under bright lights or when sat in the car. It was not present any other time. I did not have any other problems with vision, it was otherwise crystal clear.
After YAG last week, I now have huge starbursts in the monofocal eye and the "blob" is bigger and has moved places. I cannot understand how or why I am getting starbursts from a monofocal lens, particularly as they were not present before.
The tri focal eye has now returned back to its original state, therefore I see halo's, ghosting and have dim light acuity. This is common in trifocal/multi focal lenses and it is horrible.
Now with both eyes seeing halo's, starbursts and ghosting, I am unable to drive at night. Infact, I have been unable to drive at night since my first IOL in February 2017!!
