Risk Associated with Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is the most commonly performed type of eye surgery. In the vast majority of cases, approximately 95% of the time, the surgery is uncomplicated. Cataract surgery usually results in improved vision and a well satisfied patient. However, cataract surgery should never be trivialized. In a small percentage of patients, events occur which can lead to less than ideal results. Most of these events are known risks of the surgery itself and can occur even if the operation is performed well by an experienced surgeon. The occurrence of these events is often unpredictable. Patients should be aware of such possibilities when they decide to proceed with surgery. Some of the most common risks are reviewed in this session. These are Endophthalmitis, Cystoid Macular Edema, Retinal Detachment, Posteriorly Dislocated Lens and Material Choroidal Haemorrhage.

  • Endophthalmitis
  • Cystoid Macular Edema
  • Retinal Detachment
  • Posteriorly Dislocated Lens Material
