Risks and Side Effects of Cataract Surgery
The success of your surgery is greatly dependent on the skill and experience of your surgeon. It's important that you make a careful, informed choice regarding your surgeon and that you follow his or her instructions for aftercare, including follow-up visits.
No replacement lens, however sophisticated it might be, is as good as a young, healthy, crystalclear natural lens. Though your vision will almost certainly be better than before your surgery, it will not be as sharp as a teenager's. Nighttime halos and glare, double vision, and ghosting might not be eliminated altogether.
Even so, by replacing a clouded natural lens- which is only going to get worse over time-with a clear, durable, state-of-the-art synthetic lens, you will see images more vividly than you have for years (including those occasional dots in your field of vision-tiny fragments known as floaters). You'll enjoy greater independence and a wider range of activities. And all this will be possible with less dependence-maybe even no dependence-on eyeglasses.Normal Side Effects »
