I'm 50, and recently had cataract surgery (in May and then June, I had
congenital, posterior polar cataracts) with intraocular lens placements.
The procedures went well and the doctor is happy with the results. I do not have a detached retina or any other complications whatsoever.
There IS something rather bothersome, though. It seems that light, or glare,
bounces off the peripheral edge of my new lens (especially the right eye)
and I will notice what looks like a shimmering or flickering. I'm just curious to know if anyone else has this going on. I am pretty sure that this is an annoyance that I'll need to get used to rather than a problem, but it would
be reassuring to hear of others who have the same. Thanks!
