I had an operation to insert an express valve to my right eye to treat grycoma. The pressure in the eye after the operation rose too high which resulted in having to go back to surgery to release a stitch to reduce the pressure. After all this the eye picked up some sort of infection and had to be treated quite severly to clear the infection.
I now have ended up with my pupil being dilated and not responding to medication at all, it will not dilate and contract at all in response to light at all which is very very painfull and blindingly bright during daylight hours. Has anyone any suggestions as to where I could get this rectified at all??
