• Can you have cataract surgery again if pressure is high?


    Question:

    If you had cataract surgery once, can you have it again because your eye pressure keeps rising?


    Answer:

    Cataract surgery is done once per eye and never repeated. In some cases, cataract surgery can lower high pressure caused by certain types of glaucoma (most commonly narrow-angle glaucoma). If your pressure is too high after cataract surgery, talk with your ophthalmologist about possible treatments, which include drops, laser, or surgery.
