Your post-operative vision depends on your fundus (retina) conditions which have been examined and diagnosed by the doctor before your surgery. Patients who have surgery in the first stage of cataract often achieve higher vision than the one that have surgery when his/her lens becomes hardened. In most cases, you can see normally in the very first days after your surgery. However, in cases of taking surgery when your lens is too hard, your vision at first can still be blurred, but it will become gradually clear after 1 or 2 days of applying eye drops as instructed by your doctor.

The best corrected vision (by glasses) before surgery is the maximum vision that the patient will obtains after surgery. In most cases, you will get a perfect vision of 10/10 if your eyes get that vision after adjusting your glasses to its maximum extent before your surgery. However, in case you not only have myopia but also amblyopia, you cannot get that vision even if you wear glasses of the right lens power. In this case, the myopia procedures only help your eyes get maximum vision as in the case with the lens adjusted before the surgery.

Glassy eye is a condition when myopia people do not wear glasses, their eyes are lethargic and not agile because the pupils are not focusing properly on the point to be seen. After LASIK surgery, the eyes are brought back to normal vision and can clearly see images at different distances, so this condition will improve over time. Protruding eye is caused by the fact that the eyeball axis is longer than usual in myopia patients. The LASIK surgery only affects the outer cornea, so this condition cannot be resolved.
Reply:
Yes. There is a chance of myopia returning back no matter which surgery you did because of the following causes: Your myopia surgery is carried out when you are under 18 years old, at the time that your lens power is not stable yet. Your selected surgery is inappropriate, resulting in too thin cornea after the surgery which is not safe enough for your eyes. Overuse of your eyes after your surgery Changes in your eyeball axis length (longer) or corneal curve caused by your physiology or other diseases. Cloudy vitreous humor caused by degeneration or disease after your surgery, limiting the light entering your cornea, and resulting in impaired vision.

Yes, there is the chance of myopia returning back if you have a too severe myopia or too thin cornea. However, with the increasingly advanced technologies, this chance is very low. In addition, there are some other caused of your myopia returning back as follows: Your myopia power has not been completely corrected after the surgery (caused by a non-thorough and non-rigorous examination procedure). This condition is completely avoided in our Japan International Eye Hospital. Your myopia surgery is carried out when you are under 18 years old Your selected surgery is inappropriate, resulting in too thin cornea after the surgery which is not safe enough for your eyes.

Phakic ICL surgery is an intraocular lens implantation surgery to treat refractive errors. Intraocular lenses with personalized parameters according to your refractive index and inner eye size will be positioned behind your iris, in front of your lens. This is the optimal surgical method for patients with severe myopia or hyperopia of 8-9 diopters at least and/or thin cornea.
Reply:
Phakic ICL surgery can deal with a myopia of up to 18 diopters combined with an astigmatism of up to 6 diopters. In addition, Phakic also can deal with a hyperopia of up to 10 diopters combined with astigmatism of up to 6 diopters. In case of excessive refractive powers, you need to wear additional framed glasses or carry out further Lasik surgery to get your vision improved.

There is a structure in your eye which looks like a transparent focusing lens, called the lens. It carries the function of refraction and accommodation to help your eye to see near and far objects. If it is no longer transparent, it is called cataract.

You are recommended to have your eye checked annually or upon defecting any abnormalities in vision (blurred vision), light perception (glare) or color (color is not bright, sharp). By looking into the lens, the ophthalmologist will know its condition, so you are recommended to take regular examinations.

There are 02 ways to treat the cataract: Phaco (or Phacoemulsification). This procedure involves fragmentizing and separating the cloudy lens into small pieces by high frequency ultrasonic waves and aspirating them through a small incision. After the lens particles are removed, an intraocular lens implant, commonly referred to as an IOL, is implanted and positioned into the lenses natural capsule. Laser Cataract surgery shares the same mechanism of fragmentizing the cloudy lens and aspirating it out and implanting an appropriate artificial lens. However, in this procedure, a number of manual operations by the surgeon such as creating an incision, creating a tearing path for the lens membrane and fragmentizing the cloudy lens shall be performed by Femtosecond Laser, bringing many outstanding advantages in terms of accuracy, safety, and quick recovery.

The ideal time to get a cataract surgery is when your vision is about 3/10 – 4/10. In some special cases, for example, you are driving regularly or doing works requiring high accuracy, you can get it when your vision is 5/10 – 6/10. It is not recommended to wait until your vision is completely lost. Because in that case your cataract is too mature which can cause complications and reduce the success rate of the operation.

A successful cataract surgery is the one that leaves no complications. You may have some discomfort for a short time after your surgery which is caused by your dry eyes. If you take follow-up examinations and get medication guidance on time, this discomfort will gradually disappear.

The condition in which the vision becomes blurred after a certain period of Phaco surgery is caused by various reasons. The most popular one is secondary Posterior Capsule Opacification. Posterior capsule is a transparent membrane remained after the surgery to put the artificial lens on. It’s not difficult to deal with this condition. Your vision will be restored by a laser posterior capsulotomy.

No. People with myopia have poor distant vision. Therefore, they need to wear glasses to improve their visual function and quality of life. Failure to wear glasses regularly will cause the children’s visual function to be less developed, refractive error disorder, resulting in faster progression of myopia compared to those who wear glasses regularly
Reply:
In fact, leading experts in ophthalmology claim that there are not any reliable medical studies or proofs showing that people with myopia can regain good vision by those ways. The cases of vision improved after the above “exercises” are due to pseudo myopia – a condition in which the refractive index experiences a temporary increase caused by eyes over accommodation or accommodation disorder.

At school age, children’s eyes have to engage in many close-up activities. During their puberty, their eyeball structure will change a lot, so their myopia will still increase. However, it is possible to control their myopia by encouraging them to wear glasses regularly, join reasonable activities, limit use of electronic devices, spend more time playing outdoors so that their eyes can be trained to see far away. Some other solutions recommended by ophthalmologists to control myopia progression are to use Ortho K overnight lenses, use 0.01% Astropine, and wear framed glasses or multifocal contact lenses. As parent(s), you should consult an ophthalmologist for advice and guidance on suitable solutions for your children’s eyes.

Pure myopia has without retinal damage usually lead to no serious complication. However, a severe myopia can cause peripheral retinal degeneration, resulting in a retinal tear or detachment. This is a very serious complication that can lead to blindness. People with retinal degeneration caused by myopia need regular monitoring and treatment when necessary.

The suitable age for surgery of this kind is at least 18 years old, with stable refractive index, eligible corneal parameters. Therefore, it is necessary to have a comprehensive examination before the surgery to get evaluation and consultation about the best surgical method by the doctor.

Children under 18 years old should wear glasses of the right lens power, take eye examination every 3 or 6 months to control changes in their lens power. During their puberty, the myopia still experiences changes, as such their glasses should be corrected for the best vision.
