  • Answer: Actually, there is always iritis after cataract surgery. This is simply part of the natural healing response of the eye. Cataract surgeons grade this on a scale of "trace" to "4+." With the standard post-op drops this usually resolves completely by four to eight weeks after surgery. However, certain conditions (such as diabetes) can result in a longer course of inflammation.

    Sometimes, however, the iris is damaged during cataract surgery. Iris trauma can result from conditions that affect the dilation of the pupil (such as pseudoexfoliation and use certain medications). Anyone taking Tamsulosin (aka Flomax) or drugs like it should tell their eye surgeon as these drugs are associated with a condition known as Intraoperative Floppy Iris Syndrom (IFIS) that can increase the risk of iris damage, capsular rupture, retinal detachment, etc. If the surgeon is made aware of the use of this drug before surgery, s/he can often take extra precautions to limit the risks during surgery.

  • Answer: Hi. Studies show that about 90% of people who underwent cataract surgery have better vision afterwards (between 20/20 and 20/40 vision). Improvement of near, immediate and distance vision, color perception and night vision were also noted after intraocular lens (IOL) placements, but results may vary depending on the type of IOL used.

    Experts agree that up to 92% of patients achieve better vision without glasses after the procedure and can sustain good vision even years after lens replacement.

    However, for some people who cannot have an IOL, soft contact lens or corrective glasses may also provide high magnification, although not as precise as IOLs. If you have more questions, discuss your concerns with your ophthalmologist.
