• Did my abscessed tooth cause blurry vision after cataract surgery?


    Question:

    I had an abscessed tooth for months the dentist never found and felt horrible but then had cataract surgery. Now my eyes are dry, and vision is still not clear. Could my abscessed tooth have caused that inflammation?


    Answer:

    It's not clear what inflammation you are referring to. However, if your vision is not as expected after cataract surgery there is certainly an explanation. Dry eyes are one possibility. It is highly unlikely that the abscessed tooth is affecting your cataract surgery results. Your cataract surgeon can best explore and discuss the reasons for your symptoms.
