    Question:

    What could have happened if a patient experiences all the symptoms of a concussion after cataract surgery? Have you ever heard of this happening?


    Answer:

    Major surgery upon any organ, including the eye, can result in major emotional after-effects. Symptoms of a concussion are many, but they would be expected to overlap with the variety of post-operative emotional experiences that can occur. These usually resolve with time. However, any unusual symptoms after an anesthetic or surgical procedure should be discussed with your surgeon and with your primary care physician.
