I had a repair on a macular hole in my right eye back in March I think and was asked to posture for 3 days because of chronic arthritis, which I extended to about 8-9 days. I was left with only a slightly smaller grey blind area in the centre of my eye, and still getting distortions. When I returned to Brighton eye hospital for tests I told them this and that I had a lot of blurring which they claimed was due to the cataract forming. A few days ago I saw another opthalmologist locally who said that removing the cataract would not much improve the blurring and having new specs would make NO difference at all. I so wish I hadn't had the op now. He said nothing would be gained by having the cataract removed now and will remove it mid '18, but I was not to expect much improvement. Has anyone else wound up worse off after this kind of op?
