Taking these IOLs out is much more difficult than putting them in. I would urge you to get at least 3 if not 4 separate opinions from highly experienced eye MD surgeons about your best course of action.

If you live in USA you can find and Eye MD near you at www.geteyesmart.org

Thank you Dr Hagen, that is what I am doing.
All have been local docs and perhaps I need to travel out of town
to someone with higher level skills.

where do you live? Most surgeons do not have much experience removing IOLs as its such an unusual occurrence.
