Im 21 years old and I have been diagnosed of cateract on my right eye, however doctors say it is not safe to surgically treat my eye as my reports during my first visit with the eye doctor show a bulge in the lense (13 years). Opthalmologists believe it could rupture the inside of eye during surgery which could cause further complications. My right eye is now considered a lazy eye(amplyopia)and im aware of the symptoms such as squinting,ptosis,cloud formation. Hence, to avoid these symptoms I'd like to get my surgery done ASAP. I would want to know about the complications after surgery with respect to this case . Also is it safe to have a surgery ? Can the lazy eye be ignored ?
An eye becomes lazy when its not in use. Generally that will go away if its back in use. I would see another opthamologist. Its possible you may have to wait for a bit. I do know they love to take cataracts out, so if they're saying no, they are probably telling you what's in your best interest.
