Can Cataract Surgery Reactivate Previous Condition?
JUL 02, 2014
Will having cataract surgery reactivate my chorioretinal scars (damaged tissue in the back of the eye), which might lead to blindness?
It would be very rare for an uncomplicated cataract surgery to reactivate the process which caused the chorioretinal scars. Nothing is 100 percent, but I would say that it is highly unlikely for this to happen. I suggest you talk with your ophthalmologist.
