    I was rubbing my eyes and dislodged the cornea lens that was inserted when I had the cataract surgery. I'm waiting for the doctor to call me back so I thought I would come on board to distract me from the crisis.

    Good morning to everyone. I hope you've all had your coffee by now. I also hope you're not all gone about your business!

    Oops. I am sure the Dr. will be able to fix this soon. I hate it when this type of thing happens. Relax and soon all will be well.

    Wow! I didn't know that either! I had 1 eye done 3 years ago and the 2nd eye done 3 months ago - I guess I had better be careful! Let us know how you are & what they do.

    OK...update here. I have an appt w/dr tomorrow. The tech I talked to said it's impossible to dislodge the implant, but the dr will look at it just to be sure. In the meantime the tech said it might be mucous, so I'm going to use some special drops that he gave me to see if I can clear it up.

    I'll let you know tomorrow after I see him. Crossing my fingers and toes!!!

    Oh my goodness. Hope the drops work for you. If your eyes itch alot, you might ask about eye drops to use on a regular basis. I know they told me not to rub my eyes since my surgery. I can't help it, they itch, alot! Please
    keep us informed of your outcome. Hope all goes well for you.

    pab: Actually, he didn't need to use stitches. He used a new method which only make a minute slit and then inserts a syring-type needle and emulsifies the catact, sucks it out and inserts the new implant. I was awake through both operations and never had a problem.

    After my cataract surgery 11 years ago, my doctor said to be gentle when rubbing my eyes. I've always practiced that and have never had a problem.
