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