Risks of Cateract Surgery

Were you looking for information about Cataract Surgery Complications? Risks of cateract surgery is a common misspelling and variation of cataract surgery complications.
Usually, cataract surgery is a safe and effective procedure. As with all surgical procedures, however, there are risks associated with it. Complications that may occur with cataract surgery are usually classified as minor or major. Most minor complications of cataract surgery are temporary and are often easily treated by healthcare providers.
Examples of minor complications include double vision, wound leaks, increased pressure within the eye, and clouding behind the lens capsule (also known as a secondary cataract). Major complications with this type of surgery are rare and may include bleeding, inflammation, displacement of the implanted lens, or a reaction to medication or anesthesia.
