Waiting To get Metal Out & Loss Vision In Left Eye

My surgeon is going to take some of the metal out of my lower back in August, as soon as he gets approval from my primary Dr. I had bleeding problems with the neck & lower back surgery. Anyway, while I'm waiting for my apt. Thursday with my primary doc, I woke up Wednesday morning and my left eye is all blurry and it feels like I'm trying to see through a film or haze. Never had problem like this before, so I'll have my doctor look at it.


  • I'm sorry to hear but could you see your eye Dr. before then? I would be concerned about the haze. I get that haze but it's more like squiggly lines when I have a migraine in one eye. I hope there's nothing serious more that a dry eye. When you blink a few times does it clear any little bit? If you're having any pain in your eye go to ER. Also if you're older in your 40's there may be a sign of cataract also. Take care and thinking of you. Charry

  • I have permanent nerve damage to one eye. What I found was that certain of the anti-depressants made my vision better or worse. Have you changed meds recently?
