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.

Votazione: Eccellente
I underwent surgery for high myopia and astigmatism in both eyes on September, 19 and 20,  2013 and my quality of life has immediately improved.

Surgery began with a simple local anesthesia (eye drops). During surger... Keep on reading this reviewy, I didn’t feel any discomfort or pain and the procedure took about ten minutes. After surgery, I immediately started to see better and I went out from the operating room without any bandage.

The only inconvenience I mentioned, during the first days after surgery, was a slight and bearable burning and light sensitivity which disappeared in the following days.

After surgery I immediately went back to my everyday life, finally without the need for contact lenses or glasses.

I recommend this surgery with Dr. Federico Badalà and his professional, kind and passionate staff.
