is definitely one of the long term side effects of steroid use. I am facing surgery in the very near future. While my medical problems are a list long, this is one that really scares me. I have heard good things about this type of surgery, but, I am very sensitive about my eyes. It would be difficult for me to even allow someone to simply put drops in my eyes. I need total honesty here. Anyone that has had this surgery, what are possible problems or any thing that is not well known. I am terrified!!
