• Can waviness in vision be corrected with glasses?


    Question:

    Can waviness in vision be corrected with glasses? I had a vitrectomy about a year ago and resultant cataract removed two months ago. Vision in the eye is very wavy. Is this likely to improve at all? It was the reason I had the surgery (to fix scarring from a retinal tear repair).


    Answer:

    While some types of waviness (like that caused by astigmatism) can be corrected with glasses, the waviness that you are experiencing is more likely related to some distortion of the retinal tissue. This type of waviness cannot be corrected with glasses.
