9 days ago I had surgery to insert a Visian phakic ICL into my left eye. I've previously used daily contact lenses to correct roughly -6.0 myopia.
Already the day after, my vision was startlingly clear. Very impressed. I had my post-op checkup, and we were all content with the results!
However, after 3-4 days I've developed three issues:
1) a sector of 45 to 90 degrees of halo around bright lights. I live in northern areas, so it's very dark this time of year, I believe this might be contributing to the issue. The ring goes from about 0 to 90 degrees around light sources.
2) if lights hit me directly from the side, I see clear lines of light horizontally across my line of vision.
3) I can't be 100% sure, but it seems light is generally bleeding out. If I'm in a very bright room, such as my bath, the wall seems to glare more than on the un-treated eye.
If at all relevant, I'm using, and adhering to the dosages, Voltaren Optha and Spersadex w/Kloramfenikol drops. Spelling might vary I guess.
My doctor is on vacation & unreachable until early 2010, and I'm honestly a bit worried about this.
What is the likely cause of the problem, and can I reasonably hope this will clear up on its own?
Hopeful of answers to this, going a bit mad.
