Like most people who undergo cataract surgery, John Taylor expected to see better after the procedure. Instead, the 78-year-old noticed blurring in his peripheral vision. He saw his ophthalmologist several times and had a cataract in his right removed a few months later, but the blurriness persisted. His optometrist suspected it might be caused by a growth on his brain. Taylor reached out to his primary care physician at Scripps and was quickly referred to neurology. Unfortunately, tests revealed a much more complicated problem: a tumor on his pituitary gland that was pressing on his optic nerve. Click here to find out how a Scripps Clinic neurosurgeon and otolaryngologist used some of the most advanced technology and imaging equipment during the surgery to restore Taylor’s sight.
