Hello all, let me start with a little background. I had vitrectomy to repair RD in my LEFT eye last september and have a cataract in that eye which formed shortly afterwards. I have been getting along fine with my right eye compensating for the left. Its amazing to me that the good eye has compensated so well. Sometimes if I have been tired I do get blurred vision, but blink a couple of times and its fine. The cataract in the left eye has gotten worse the last couple of months. I saw the retina MD in April and he examined both eyes (did OCT on both) and approved the left eye (vitrectomy) eye for cataract removal. I just saw the cataract surgeon last week and she did a dilated exam of both eyes as part of new patient exam, then took eye measurements. I felt she did a very thorough dilated exam, the slit lamp was very bright and the brightest that I have ever experienced - so much as that it was very uncomfortable.
Now being scheduled for the cataract surgery on the left eye, I have recently (since last exam by cat surgeon) noticed in my GOOD (right) eye a spot in the central area that is almost like a collection of dots, or a smudge, and sometimes a short line. This occurs only when rapidly moving my eyes horizontally, and immediately goes away. I get no flashes at night and seems to be only noticeable in lighted areas. Vision is good out of the eye. I do have floaters but nothing new and have had them for years. Having experienced a detachment of the left eye last september, I am not experiencing any of the shadows, peripheral flashes, nor the tons of wisps/smokey floaters that I had then. ** Now I am not sure if I am apprehensive of upcoming surgery and just fixating on my eyes more and seeing what has always been there, but I don't think so. Amsler grid test seems fine. I am scheduled for the cataract surgery on the left eye (vitrectomy eye) in two weeks, been cleared medically by general md, but can't help but be concerned. Most likely will be calling the eye md and getting it checked but does this sound concerning to you?
