Problems... 10/15/2010

I was told before cataract surgery that I would have focus in the affected eye ""from arm's lenght to optical infinity."" Being familiar with optics, I understood. That is not what I got. I got retro focus, or unsharp at any distance. ""Well, we TRY for that' was the reply AFTER surgery. They told me it was based on science, now they tell me it is really a ""best guess"" scenario. I also was NOT told that 30~50% of all catatract surgerys develop serious compiications within two years. So before they had my money, I was getting remarks like ""You might not even have to wear glasses!"" Afterwards, it was ""Well it's never 20-20."" That is quite an understatement, sort of like saying that World War II was just a skirmish. I learned the hard way that this surgery is still a very INEXACT procedure, and while it is safe (as in not life-threatening) there are some extremely troubling issues surrounding the surgery, and if YOU, the patient, have not done your homework sufficiently (as I apparently had not), that is, don't have enough information to know what to ask, Hunkeler won't tell you in advance. I don't know if all clinics operate this way. I can only speak to my unfortunate experience. An eye drop remedy used extensively in Europe, Russia and Australia is never discussed, naturally, because a $75 bottle of drops is not nearly as rewarding to the physician as a $3500 surgical procedure. The fact that the drops are not approved by the FDA is just one more example of the powerful surgical lobby. I found out about the eye drops too late, but if you are considering cataract surgery, research, research, research, think about it and then think about it some more. You don't want to wind up like me... :( more
