Lupus and IOL

Discussion in 'Optometry Archives' started by melindasaccount, Dec 19, 2005.

  1. The tale of my cataract and IOL is posted here, so there's no need to
    repeat. But ever since the surgery, along with all the other
    complications, I've had an intermittent bright red facial rash only on
    the implant side. I know I have lupus and told both the surgeon and
    anesthesiologist about it. Could my body be trying in its own way to
    reject the implant? Now, I know that I may not be using the right word,
    because something that isn't living tissue can't be "rejected" in the
    usual sense. Anyway, my surgeon knows about it and keeps assuring me
    that it's nothing. Mind you, he's the one who said of my paralyzed
    pupil, "Sometimes that happens," in an offhanded way. Oy vey! To be
    continued. M
