Hi Dr XXXXXXX
I would be grateful if you can advise me on this imp matter.
My dad has been detected with cataract which is at initial stage. its in the right eye & will start developing in left eye in future.
His doctor advised him for lazer surgery which will cost appx 30K each eye. his right eye will be operated 1st.
he has suggested to use this lens - Acrysoft acrylic lens which is a US company & protects against UV rays.
Your advise will immensely help.

Dear XXXXXXX,
i am sorry,this is not the laser i interpreted
This is a proper approach for your father s surgeryStrictly speaking this is not laser surgery but ultrasonic waves are used.
Cost of surgery varies from place to place and acrysof is a good lens.That means you are in good hands and go ahead with surgery.
Please do get back to me in case of any further query in this regard.

I have angioedema, however, the redness, itching and discomfort I have been experiencing for the past week is growing worse and is only located on the outsides of both underarms. I take doxepin for the angioedema. I have been using three new prescription eye drops for cataract pre/post op: 1. Gatifloxacin 2. Lotemax and 3. Prolensa (my next op is 6/30/14 for my right eye). This new condition only began after my first cataract surgery on 6/16/14 and kept me awake most of last night. I am using neosporone on both sites. Thank you for any information you might offer. CW

My mother an 80-year-old, weighs around 58 kg, had some numbness in her right lower extremities. Our PCP checked her BP and it was 190/90. My mother does not have any history of hypertension or diabetes, does not have any chest pain or shortness of breath. No fever or chills. She is very active and involve in all daily routine activities normally. Our PCP suggested to take amlodipine besylate 5 mg once daily. After she took her first dose of 5 mg, she feels little fatigue. Just what I want to know is, whether mild lower-extremity numbness is due to high systolic 190 though diastolic reading is 90. Is it safe to continue with calcium channel blocker or should go to some other medication. What are the risk factors? I will take her to my PCP in 3-4 days and get her BP checked. My mother is purely vegetarian, drinks 2-3 coffee per day, otherwise, normal with vitals and physical. Cataract operation two years back with lens. She does not take any other medications. Please suggest whether she should continue with this medication.
