Cataract Surgery complications

Le complicazioni dopo l’operazione di cataratta sono oggi molto rare per fortuna.Per ridurre il rischio di complicazioni dopo la chirurgia della cataratta occorre attenersi scrupolosamente alle avvertenze e alle terapie date dal vostro oculista. La chirurgia della cataratta con facoemulsificazione e l’intervento laser cataratta hanno ulteriormente ridotto i rischi.

The most dreaded complication, even if extremely rare, is infection. During the first days after surgery, the risk of infection is still high. For this reason, the patient has to meet deadlines set by the ophthalmologist for checkups and follow a theraphy with antibiotic eye drops.

If you happen to have any doubt, it is best to get in touch with the ophthalmologist that performed the surgery. In case of infection, a prompt treatment can solve the problem with no serious consequences.

Another complication of cataract surgery is eye hemorrhage. It is important to contact the ophthalmologist in case the patient is currently under anticoagulant therapies, so that it is possible to do what’s best before surgery.

another complication that can appear later on, is the formation of a secondary cataract. This is a pretty common occurrence that can happen 1 year after surgery and is cured as an outpatient treatment with the yag laser.

From fear to joy! I was diagnosed with cataract, but my greatest wish was to correct also my high myopia and fear had always stuck me.

After a careful research I set up a visit with Dr. Badala and I immediately unders... Keep on reading this reviewtood that I was on the right way. With just one surgery, the doctor freed me from cataracts, myopia (more than 20 diopters) and astigmatism(about 3 diopters).

Surgery took place in the operating room, I had the shirts, the electrodes for monitoring and, given that I chose local anesthesia to do not see or hear anything, they give me a shot near the eye.

Only six hours after surgery, removing the bandage, I had already noticed an improvement in eyesight. Just to be safer, I slept with a protective shell. The next day I did the check-up and, seeing that it was successful, I set up the other eye surgery 10 days later.

Just one month from both surgeries I had the great joy of being able to see 10/10 for the first time in my life. My life has completely changed and I am very satisfied with the result.
