My Boyfriend has Intraocular lenses and currently his age is 30 eye power is -11 and -15 There were few small holes in his eyes lattice but the doctors have fixed those with laser as the age advances is his sight going to become worse will he be able to find glasses of his vision. He got his cataract surgery done when he was 4-5 years of age. Now the doctors say that the intraocular lens has sticked to the eye and is very difficult and risky to replace. I am very worried please advice what should be done. Currently he has no significant issues but we are afraid what will happen when he grows old will surgery be a option still. Doctors have suggested piggyback lenses but they put quite a lot pressure on eyes and eye lattice please suggest what to expect in the long run
Hey I saw your posts about SEES, My name is Merrick and I am a medical student at the University of Utah. I suffer from SEES. I remember when I was 11yo watching Matilda and getting these symptoms when she was put into the iron maiden, it has been with me ever since. I am interested in finding out some commonalities between all of us, and possibly some sort of cause and treatment. I am doing some research on SEES/Visual Looming Syndrome and need as many participants as possible to answer some questions and help with the study. I was wondering if you knew any more about the subject? Please email me at merrick.***@**** Hopefully we can figure this out together!
Just a quick note to say hi!
Hi! I had a quick question about lattice degeneration. What is the prognosis? what is the current best treatment and if I were to get this treatment what are the chances of the lattice progressing or stabilizing?
Just a quick note to say hi! I still remember the time I started here at MH . Long hard time chatting about RDs ...You and Berrywoo helped me a lot that time. Tks again
Dear Sir, is it possible to get rid of the scleral melanocytosis?
I recently had laser cataract surgery with lens implants. Now I see things larger in my left eye that my right eye. Could they have put in the wrong refractive lens in one eye? I guess it's called anisometroipia. What would you recommend I do to correct this problem? Thanks,

Hello Dr., I have just put a post regarding my sons eyes... have read your comments on many posts and really regard your opinion. Request you to please go through my post and let me know of your opinion.
Post title- 2yr old child having Corneal Ulcer, extreme photophobi and redness in eyes
Thank you in advance.
I've seen a few comments by you in regards to eyes, so I thought I'd ask you this.
About a month back, I noticed a strange symptom in my right eye - strange as I'm 16 years of age! I've noticed that, in my right eye, when I blink, I get this very faint grey circle, the size of probably a table tennis ball, appearing in my near peripheral. (Just to the right side of central vision, and then slightly downwards). If I blink many times constantly I can see it clearer. A perfectly round faint grey circle.
Co-incidentally I was having an issue with floaters at the time, so I had a dilated pupil exam 2 days before I noticed it, and recently had another non-dilated exam of the retina,(this is after I noticed the symptom) AND retina photography, with no issues found. Is this serious?
Hello Dr. Hagan.
I had lattice degeneration surgery about a month ago, and I'm having some phenomenoms in my left eye, a lot of people describe it as a shimmering, but also I think i got some distortions on the same area as the shimmering. I'm getting very anxious and depressed about this situation since I can't find much information about it. Hope I can borrow some of your time and get some information about those phenomenoms. Thanks a lot for your time.
I am a fourth year medical student at the University of Missouri- Columbia and I am extremely interested in surgery. However, I am also extremely myopic (-14.00 in both eyes for a glasses prescription). I have floaters and flashes of light. I am concerned that I could have a retinal detachment/go blind and I’m considering doing another specialty because of it, which is very disheartening. I guess I’m asking for advice or encouragement. My grandfather (who had a retinal detachment with repair himself) told me to do what my heart says and deal with the consequences later. My mother is more conservative and wants me to make a rational decision. So I’m asking you, since this is your area of expertise and I trust you as a physician. Thank you for your time.
