Experiencing eye redness and burning after 4 months of cataract surgery. Why?
Hello, My 63 years old grandmother had cataract surgery for 4 months. She is having ongoing issues of eye redness, constant burning pain, and dryness 4 months after cataract surgery with intraocular lens implantation? Does it happen after cataract surgery? Pain isn’t as severe as she said but I am worried about also I have consulted a doctor, and they are saying she might have dry eye but I am a bit concerned. Why is this happening can anyone tell?
@yde Hello, Many patients experience dry eye symptoms such as stinging irritation and burning eyes after cataract surgery, Since many people over the age of 55 already have a dry eye tendency, they may become more aware of it after the surgery. Dry spots form on the cornea, and these become slightly irritated. There are a couple of issues that may be a problem. There is a test that your optometrist can do to check for dry eye. The other possibility is an infection in the eye, Germs that get in your eye during surgery can lead to an infection. . Again an optometrist should be able to detect it. You can always take their advice. Thanks!
