Hey! I'm 45 years old and I'm diabetic. I'm on medication for diabetes for about a year. Recently, I have some trouble with my eyes. I noticed that my vision is decreasing each day and I find it difficult to drive my car even during daytime. So I consulted an eye doctor. After a detailed check-up, he said that I am diagnosed with cataract. He also mentioned that diabetes might be the reason for the cataract. He suggested undergoing cataract surgery and he scheduled it the next day. But after surgery, I experienced pain and itchiness in my eyes. I consulted the same eye doctor again. He said that these are the common symptoms people face after having a cataract surgery and it is called Secondary Cataract. He suggested undergoing YAG laser treatment from a clinic in Toronto ( http://www.skouraseyeandcosmetic.com/yaglaser... ). I'm planning to visit the clinic tomorrow. Is this procedure effective? Is it worth spending money? Will cataract reoccur after this treatment? Please share your insights!
