RISKS AND SIDE EFFECTS OF CATARACT SURGERY

NORMAL SIDE EFFECTS

For a few days after your cataract surgery you might experience a slight aching or tenderness of the eye. Only about 5 percent of patients are uncomfortable enough to take an over-the-counter pain reliever. Also normal and to be expected are itching, scratchiness, watering or dryness, and sensitivity to light.

As mentioned, you'll notice fluctuations in your vision for a few weeks or even longer, depending on the lens implanted and your own healing process. These changes should not be severe enough to interfere with your day-to-day activities.
