What are cataract surgery post op complications?
Cataract is a condition in which the lens turns cloudy or milky due to accumulation of proteins in the lens, leading to vision changes. Cataract is usually due to age but may be caused by other reasons such as congenital defect or trauma. Without treatment, cataract may lead to blindness. Cataract surgery is a common and simple operation with a very low rate of cataract surgery post op complications.
It may take years for a cataract to become serious enough for your ophthalmologist to recommend surgery.
Although cataract surgery is a short and simple procedure, it is important to closely follow your doctor’s guidelines for cataract surgery post op recovery, so you are at less risk of developing complications from the procedure. Complications may include inflammation, vision loss, infection, detached retina or pain. Vision improvements may take several weeks due to healing time and adapting to the artificial lens. Cataract surgery is an outpatient surgery which means you will go home on the same day the procedure is done meaning that most of the healing and recovery process will be at home.
