WHAT TO EXPECT
When you and your doctor decide you’re a good candidate for cataract surgery, you’ll schedule the appointment. Although the procedure is typically quick, there are a few ways you can plan for what to expect before, during, and after cataract surgery to make the process run more smoothly. Routine cataract surgery risks, irrelevant to lens selection, could be minor, temporary, or affect patients’ vision permanently. Rare complications are worsening of vision, bleeding, or infection. Discuss all risks and benefits with your eye doctor before surgery.
