Is Cataract Eye Surgery Safe?

It is always nerve wracking to consider any surgery, but if you’re thinking of getting cataract eye surgery then you can rest assured that you are choosing one of the most common procedures available, one that rarely even involves an overnight stay in the hospital.

In fact, while all surgery has risks, cataract surgery has a 98% favorable outcome.

Complications are extremely rare but could include:

  • Infection
  • Inflammation
  • Swelling
  • Retinal detachment

Your ophthalmologist will give you eye drops to apply regularly after the surgery to avoid infection. In the extremely rare instance a complication does occur, we will be there immediately to support your recovery.

Cataract eye surgery is a very common and safe procedure. At Kleiman Evangelista Eye Care Centers of Texas we are proud to deliver the best care along with the information you need to stay certain you remain healthy.

Technological advances help reduce the risk of complications during cataract surgery. At Kleiman Evangelista Eye Centers of Texas, our surgeons use LenSx Cataract Lasers to make incisions, which helps them make an already safe and precise procedure even more so. The LenSx includes an additional tool called Intraoperative Aberrometry that allows a surgeon to take measurements of your eye in the operating room that help guide a more accurate placement of your new lens.
