Can a piggyback lens on my cataract implant can be an alternative to LASIK?
JUL 02, 2013
I would like to know if a piggyback lens surgery over my cataract implant would be an alternative to LASIK to correct an underpowered implant from 10 years ago.
This is certainly a possibility depending on how the first surgery was done. Your surgeon should be able to tell if there is room to place the piggyback lens but may have to perform a vitrectomy or removal of the gel in the back of the eye prior to the implantation of the lens.
