Cataract Surgery Risks Leesburg, Eustis, Clermont

At Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists, regaining vision lost to cataracts means becoming familiar with every aspect of the surgical treatment of the condition. As with any operation, complications – although rare – may arise, and it is important to weigh these possible complications against the benefits. When it comes to cataract surgery risks, our doctors in Leesburg, Eustis, and Clermont provide honest, straightforward information to our patients.

The people of Lake County continue to entrust their eye care to the doctors of Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists. For years, our practice has proven its dedication to patients by presenting the complications and benefits of every type of treatment, including cataract surgery.

An Overview of Cataract Surgery Risks

The most frequently performed operation in the United States, cataract surgery is especially common in people above the age of 52. Our experts regard the treatment as extremely safe, and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery has found that 98 percent of all cataract surgical procedures are, in fact, successful.

Although cataract surgery risks are rare among the suitable cataract removal candidates we serve in Leesburg, Eustis, and Clermont, the following complications may occur from surgery or lens implantation:

  • Infection
  • Inflammation
  • Retinal detachment
  • Secondary cataract
  • Blindness
  • Bleeding
  • Retinal swelling or clouding
  • Development of glaucoma
  • Displacement of the lens

The vast majority of complications and side effects—in the event they develop—can be effectively treated at our surgical center.

During your consultation, a Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists doctor will examine your medical history to make sure that you are a good candidate for surgery. This thorough evaluation, combined with your strict observation of your doctor’s orders after the cataract procedure, will significantly lower the risks.

As successful cataract surgery patients experience a relatively brief recovery period, you too could potentially resume your normal routine within a few days of the procedure!
