Can having cataract surgery cause retina swelling?


Answer by  bash (1026)

I myself have undergone a Cataract Surgery for my left eye. I never felt any swelling on my retina. You have to obey the advice of Doctor fully. The eye drops etc. should be handled with utmost care. Care should be taken for not entering water inside for few days.

Cataract surgery is done by making a small incision on the outer layer of the cornea which usually does not have any blood vessels. In rare cases,may be due to the small incision or even a minute scratch made on the cornea will lead to swelling of the same.

cataract surgery is not the cause for retina swelling. one should follow proper hygiene after surgery. should not allow dust particle to fall on eyes. should not touch eyes without washing hands with an antibacterial soap. don't allow dirty cloths to contact with eyes,these may cause retina swelling.

Ninety percent of cataract surgeries are successful. There are some risks that come along with cataract surgery. They are infection, bleeding, swelling, glaucoma, second cataract, etc. But most of these problems can treat successfully.
