I returned home a day back after meeting the cataract doctor on monday.
I will post all the proceedings here so that it can be useful for others who has to go for cataract under high myopic + sjs + sjogrend + mgd + high photophobic eyes.
i had sjs in 1990 at age of 8 years.
Had preliminary check up with cornea specialist.who had seen me and had vision test also.Stats of vision are as follows.
Right eye:Finger counting vision upto 10-12feets.
Left eye:could read first line on vision test globe, without any power.With power of -10 spherical and -2 cylindrial added to it, i could read 4 lines.So thats my best corrected vision at present.
I had not worn any powered specs in my life.No doctor were able to see me properly due to non stabilized surface and excessive dryness.The coernea specialist was surprised at this and asked me to wear these numbers if i dont get cataract done shortly.
After these the cornea specialist saw me who had seen me before also in 1997 and 2011
He told my surface related issues have been improved over the years.And said such improvements are generally not seen in SJS patients.So i was doing good on that.(i would say thanks to cyclosporine).
He had me on schimer test and for left ye it was 12.So not bad.
He said my lids dont produce oils of the required quality.And said my lids are scratched.He said not to have any surgical procedure for lid smoothneing. as the more we have surgical procedues, the more weaker eye will get.He gave a lube to be applied on lids.its a Chlorocol contented eye ointment.
He said he is okay with surgery but decision to operate will be taken by cataract specialist himself.(Dr.Abhay Vasavda(http://www.raghudeepeyeclinic.com/or...eadership.html)
Then i visited the cataract specialist.He saw me and was ready to operate me.My cataract is Posterior Sub Capsular cataract.We asked him to oparate himself and not by his co ordinators.He said he will only operate and none else can operate such difficult cataracts.which is right and i agree to.
he scheduled my surgery on 6th march tuesday.I will be in for pre operative check ups on Monday.The things related to IOL selection would be done then only.
As myopic cataract needs to be watched closely for a higher chance of Retinal Detachment(RD), he advised me to take second opinion for retina.which will be done on monday evening.
Im on genteal eye drops, genteal eye ointment and cyclosprine 0.1% at present.Cataract doctor called up cornea doc to recheck if cyclosporine is okay in regards to infections.and cornea doc said he is okay with cyclosporine and no need to stop it.(this is an interesting debate whether cyclosprine increases chance for infection or not, i had a small discussion on this with our user Littlemermaid).I m going to continue with cyclosporine till 4th march.Then will stop it.
I will keep posting updates whenever i get chance in this thread.
