• Will secondary cataract surgery worsen my AMD?


    Question:

    Will a laser procedure on a secondary cataract possibly worsen macular degeneration?


    Answer:

    There is little evidence to suggest that correcting a secondary cataract with laser (posterior capsulotomy) can make your AMD (age-related macular degeneration) worse. Your visual improvement from the laser could be limited by the AMD, but the laser is not likely to worsen the AMD.
