Question

 

 

Hi,

It is almost a year after my cataract surgery and I continue to experience halos around lights at night. Can glasses for night vision help correct this problem?

I read that this problem occurs for some, but clears about 6 months to a year; but, I need to drive at night and it hasn't stopped.

Thanks

Thanks for your Question
 

 

Here are some causes of Halos after cataract surgery:
 
1- Type of the intraocular lens that was implanted during cataract surgery.

2- Refractive astigmatism which can be corneal astigmatism or lenticular astigmatism due to intraocular lens and can be corrected by eyeglasses.

3- Posterior capsular opacification. Which is a fibrous membrane that is formed at the back surface of the lens and can be removed by YAG capsulotomy.

4- Corneal edema which is uncommon to persist after 6 months.

5- Dry eyes.

The most common cause of these is refractive astigmatism.

You can have a visit to your ophthalmologist in order to correct any of these problem.
