If you have not already had cataract surgery, you should know that intraocular lenses (IOLs) are available to correct astigmatism and reduce your need to wear glasses for reading or distance vision. These lenses are sometimes called premium IOLs. While insurance only covers standard IOLs, many people choose premium IOLs for their convenience, especially if they are active and want to reduce the need for glasses after surgery. If you are interested, our office can tell you more about premium IOL options, including cost. We also offer Care Credit financing.

The surgery is performed on an OUTPATIENT basis meaning your pet will go home the same day the surgery is performed. This surgery is approximately 95% successful however, the results can be variable based on individual cases initial findings. With a successful surgery most patients regain near normal vision, although most are slightly far sighted. As a result, their vision is slightly out of focus when viewing objects at a close distance (a few feet). Most pets experience improved vision immediately and vision typically continues to improve over the 3 to 7 days following surgery.

Sara:
Your experience is quite outside the norm. Most are completely comfortable from the day of surgery on. If the IOL is in the correct position then the main cause of ongoing eye discomfort would be inflammation. I usually keep my patients on an NSAID anti-inflammatory for six weeks, in part, to ensure comfort through the healing phase. If you are still on an NSAID and the steroidal eye drop has been stopped, it is possible that you would have a quick return to comfort if that drops was restarted. You will need to discuss these options with your surgeon for specific advise about your course. On rare occasions, patients experience discomfort as the corneal nerves grow back across the incisions made for the surgery. This tends to stop when they have finished growing over the first few months. If you tend to have more pain issues than the norm with other parts of your body, then it could be an extension of that same body issue and consultation with a pain specialist could be helpful.
