LexieCat Posted April 9, 2021 Share Posted April 9, 2021 After my visit with the retinal specialist, I called to make an appointment with my regular ophthalmologist to determine whether I would benefit from the laser procedure to remove posterior scar tissue after my cataract surgery. The scheduler told me she'd have the surgeon (who sees patients at my regular ophthalmologist's office) look at the retinal specialist's report to see what he wanted to do. She called me back and said he wanted to see me this week. So last night I go in for my appointment and everyone seems to think I'm there to schedule cataract surgery for my other eye. I said, no, we decided we were gonna get this issue figured out/resolved before doing anything else. I was a bit annoyed that the surgeon seemed not to know why I was there, either, nor to have reviewed the retinal specialist's report. Once we got THAT straightened out, he did more tests/exams and said he's baffled. He said my symptoms don't make sense in view of what he was seeing and the retinal specialist's report. He said he had some questions for the retinal doc and he was going to call her today to try to get more details. He said there WAS some scar tissue, and maybe the laser was the way to go, but he wanted to do a bit more investigation first. I stressed to him how difficult this made it for me to read but that I didn't want to pay for new glasses till my vision had settled down. He agreed and said we'll work on figuring this out. This surgeon is affiliated with Wills Eye Hospital, a nationally ranked eye hospital. So I don't think he's incompetent and I think at this point my case is becoming a challenge for him. Hopefully we get it resolved before too long. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
