What's the possibility of retinal detachment in second eye after cataract surgery?
MAR 10, 2014
Yes, it is possible, and if your first surgery was uncomplicated, the odds of retinal detachment (RD) are slightly higher. Still, in absolute terms, the odds are low. The most important things are to have a good retinal exam before cataract surgery and be aware of important symptoms.
