What are possible side effects of cataract surgery?


As with any surgery, there are possible complications that can occur from cataract eye surgery. Amongst the risks of cataract removal are infection, swelling and bleeding.

95% of cataract extraction surgeries are 100% successful and few patients have serious problems or complications after cataract extraction.

Your eye surgeon may prescribe eye drops to prevent any side effects.

One complication after cataract extraction can be posterior capsule opacification, a clouding of the membrane that holds the lens. This complication can be treated in a minor procedure and is not often serious.
