Had upper/lower eyelid surgery 5 weeks ago. Cosmetic results are great and swelling and bruising are subsiding nicely.
Issue is persistent blurred vision - dramatic change in astigmatism - blurred and double vision both far and near sight. Unable to read on computer clearly, its hard to work!! i have also had to cut myself off from online shopping - i have made some expensive non-refundable mistakes!!
got a second opinion abt vision - told cornea was scratched up a bit and i shld have been warned about risks of vision loss pre-op. Neither eyedoctor willing to give any guarantees abt whether vision will return to normal or time frame for healing. Eyeballs hurt most days and wake every day with sticky eyes - using a lot of lubricating drops. Eyes tire if too much attempted reading. Big issue is 2me is vision loss - will it improve. Also lack of information online abt the real recovery time from this op.
Given low twilight during operation so was completely aware of surgery and comments - very traumatic to be this awake.
Can anybody shed any light on potential to recover vision loss? Also given no pain meds for post op.
