Re: Question about vitrectomy surgery then cataract surgery in same eye

I had swelling (on Corney?) said by the doctor. Now, about three weeks after my cataract surgery, my vision is:
- distorted (curving: straight lines become waving lines)
- haze 5%~10% (similar as with cataract; Also, it's said that there is a flagmen of former lens dropped into)
- images seem a little bigger (compared with the good eye)
- very nearsighted (500 worse than targeted)
- minor: background color is different with the good eye. It's white / cold (as expected but not used to)
boy this sounds pretty bad. Does your dr. think your vision will improve?
I sure hope so!
Thanks for your reply,
