Cataracy surgery was a nightmare for me
USA (United States of America)
Sorry I ever had cataract surgery- basically ruined my life. Now need to consider early retirement or medical disability.
I can no longer read at all and my vision is not correctable with eyeglasses or contacts at any range. I have been all over the US for options and am now being sent to Europe. Surgeon was so quick to do surgery-assuring me it was an easy procedure and I would return to work and driving in 24 hours.
It's been 9 months of Hell! and I was never told about possible problems, Now he says "something's wrong but I can't fix it- have a nice life". Another surgeon is trying to fix and I have had 3 other surgeries with lens exchange and am told I need more surgery- none of this covered by insurance.
Cataract surgeries are being done like factory piece work and there are patients who just don't do well with the current IOl's-like me.
