Do you suffer from floaters after cataract surgery?

Floaters after cataract surgery are a fairly common problem. You can get this disease if you have cataract surgery and often move or hurt yourself in a direction that looks like dust or cobwebs.

Most patients have floaters before cataract surgery, but the effect of cataracts on vision makes it more difficult to identify. Naturally, once the cataract is removed and your eyesight improves, your ability to see mosquito bites will improve as well.

It can be a bit boring at first, but the good news is that you probably don’t have to worry about this very normal situation. Some floating objects disappear over time.

However, in some cases, mosquito bites after cataract surgery may show signs of retinal cracks or retinal holes. Without proper diagnosis or treatment, it can lead to retinal detachment. So it’s important to take into account anything that is considered unusual for us when following up at our center.

If you’ve had cataract surgery and think you’ve developed floaters, have your eyes been carefully assessed to rule out retinal problems? When you examine them, your eye doctor will dilate your pupils to carefully examine your retina. Generally speaking, if the retina looks healthy and there are no tears, the tracer will go away within a few weeks or months. In some cases, floating objects may not disappear completely.

A major warning sign of retinal detachment is a sudden flash of light, a significant increase in the number or size of floaters, or falling curtains and shadows that block your view. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should go to the Vision Cataract & Laser Center and see a doctor immediately for a complete eye exam.

Outpatient surgery was performed to replace the damaged lens to prevent the development of cataracts.

First, you are injected with numbing eye drops or pain reliever and medicine to help you rest. During surgery, they use a laser to make an incision. Subsequently, the cloudy cataract lens was dismantled and removed. Finally, they place an ocular lens (IOL) over the eye.
