Miss Helen, folks, howdy. I had cataract surgery Nov. 1 of last year. Your experience sounds similiar to mine, Helen. I had the Acrysof lens put in. It still appears way too strong for the eye, but as Serious Person has said, things stand to improve after six months. It is a far-sighted type lens. I developed a wrinkle in it around Thanksgiving causing a horizontal streak from lights. December 22, the Dr. lasered the wrinkle out, but now, I have starburst lines streaking out radially, from lights at night. It's REALLY visible at night in here when I look at the green lights on my wireless modem! I can't get a clear answer yet from the Dr. as to whether I am stuck with this or not. It seems "slightly" better, but far from gone. I'm just thankful it doesn't bother me watching the tube or in daytime. It could be worse. Like you, Helen, I hope the slow growing cataract in my other eye freezes in place! :rolleyes:
