I did not fully experience this after the first surgery just before Christmas, but after the surgery on the dominant eye about a month ago. this seems like a real issue. Will this start to go away and back to normal soon and/or after time?

The real issue right now is trying to read sitting around the house.

I had my last visit with the doctor thee weeks ago. He used the word "perfect" to describe the results of the surgery. I need no glasses for distance or driving any longer, and sunglasses solve the bright light problem during the day driving. I bought some yellow sun glasses to try for night glare. Have not tries those yet.

Your thoughts are welcome.
Your eye surgeon is a member of the Illuminati and has implanted special lenses in your eyes that will finally prevent you from seeing things that are not really there.

Basically, opens up the back side of the capsule. Had to have it some on both of my eyes that had cataracts removed, but about a decade after the cataract itself.
I had both eyes done back in 1992 when I was 42 and within 6 months I had the secondary cataract, or as it was called back then, scar tissue. As you said, a simple 30 second laser procedure to clear it up and my vision was even more improved. However, both eyes were very sensitive to light for a short period afterwards. I don't necessarily subscribe to the "cheap sunglasses" suggestion. I would invest in a good pair of sunglasses with UV protection.

I had my 2nd eye done Monday.. I chose far vision rather than a compromise. Both eyes checked out at 20/15 yesterday. Got a new pair of Costa Permits with 501 glass in green tint on copper lens. I put the top down today and drove 60 miles on clear blue sunny afternoon No problems just good vision.
Thanks Bascom Palmer.

We will have to test that out.

Biggest mistake I ever made was choosing to be nearsighted instead of farsighted. I was tired of wearing reading glasses so I chose to see close. Now I can't see my golfball when I hit it and I still have to wear distance glasses and drugstore reading glasses.....of course my surgery was done 27 years ago....and my surgeon's name was Lance.....LOL

I had my right eye done 10 years ago and the results were amazing! I no longer have eyeglasses needed as a restriction on my drivers license! I do have light sensitivity in the right eye but I can live with it. Hoping to eventually get the other eye done. I got the fixed lens so I need magnifiers to read. After dealing with the readers, off and on, where the heck are they??….. I just had the eye doc to make me a set of glasses with no prescription in the right wye, normal prescription in the left wye and bi-focals so I can read, I wear them all the time but can switch to sunglasses at anytime time. And I can drive without them. The procedure was easier than going to the dentist.

Now, after a month since the second surgery, I am very happy with the results. I asked the doctor about the near vs. far choice. but she told me she does it only one way.

I now have very clear far vision and no longer need glasses to drive, etc.

The best thing I did was invest in Rx glasses for reading and not just drug store classes. I tried the later for a couple weeks. I also invested in computer glasses. For readin, I invested a little extra money in progressive lenses. Now I do not have to take off my glasses.

I also bought some yellow night driving ski glasses. Ten bucks helped down glare at night, and I am using the dark wrap around glassed from the surgery for day time driving. We have gotten a couple feet of snow here in the past few weeks. It is very white out there.

Who if any amongst you had the initial procedure done by laser instead of the simple (mechanical) version?
