After laser IOL implant I now have severe aniseikonia. Was it wrong diopter lense? Can it be undone? Very poor and triple vision. What to do?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I shall try to answer all your queries in detail.
Aniseikonia occurs when the difference in refractive error is more than 4 or 5 diopters between two eyes.
If you say you had laser-assisted cataract surgery which means a femto surgery, the size of incision would be perfect. So, basically, the reason for your aniseikonia would be:
Now, I have told you the option if the wrong lens were implanted, that is, if power error is less than 2 to 3 D one can go for contacts or spectacles but if power error is more than 4 to 5 D one has to go for IOL (intraocular lens) exchange.
To diagnose rest, you have to go for an investigation known as Pentacam and OCT (optical coherence tomography).Follow up with results.

Answer: Hello, Welcome to icliniq.com. Myopia is a refractive error. The change in your refractive correction should be checked every six months to note any progression/improvement.
