They don't check behind your eyes before surgery. Best thing to do is check with an independent ophthalmologist.

Hi, I had surgery 5 years ago with an enhancement 3 years ago.

I've suffered with dry eyes since the surgery with my eyes burning if I open them too quickly when I wake up.

Last year I started to get blurred vision in my right eye but I'd just had a baby and moved house so going to the optician was put off.

Last October I passed a local Optical Express and went in for an eye test. I was told I needed to go to the hospital as my retina was detaching.

I went back to the opticians in January as I feared my left eye was also regressing. I was told I had 20/20 vision.

In March I decided to go to Vision Express who were my opticians before the surgery. I was told my prescription in -.75 and -1.50. I can barely see out of my right eye and what I can see is very blurred.

Has anyone else had retinal detachment after surgery? Is surgery a contributing factor or am I just unlucky?

I'm devastated by this and having wasted £4000.
