They usually get better, but not always.
Thank you for your answer I hope mine will not last very long,but can you train your brain not to see starbursts and halos?
It's now been 3 years since my cataract surgeries and the (1) YAG following them. Doctor never did do a second YAG; just on the off chance it may do more harm than good. The starbursts are still there but don't bother me as much; I don't know whether my brain got used to them or they actually diminished with time (lots of it!).
I did try the drops that shrink your pupils (at night) but they did not make any difference.
