Squint operation done, difficulty in viewing distant objects. What should be done?

My daughter 19 years old who has undergone squint operation on 18/12/2013 is facing problems. She is able to see near images clearly and can work on computer and read books without much problem. She is however, unable to see clearly objects which are far off say at a distance of 4-5 m or more. Objects are not very clear and she only see hazy figures. She is studying engineering and very nervous. We have taken her to eye specialist doctor and he has commented that there are no problems with the eye. She was putting some eye drops after the operation and doctor asked her to taper off the dosage as they are causing higher pressure in the eye. Doctor also gave some eye drops to reduce the pressure. She was OK for 2-3 days and again she reported the same problem of hazy figure and not so clear vision for far objects . Please tell us what is to be done.

the drops which were given to u were most probably steroids. these on long term usage can cause condition known as glaucoma(increase pressure in the eye). taper that drops. get a refraction done. complete glaucoma evaluation. early it is treated, good results can be obtained.
