Complex Cataract Surgery
What is Complex Cataract Surgery?
A cataract develops when the natural crystalline lens in the eye becomes cloudy. This is generally due to ageing. The only treatment for cataracts is to remove it surgically. However very often other factors may make the surgery much more complicated.
Mr. Ayoub is a highly experienced surgeon who regularly does complex cataracts with excellent outcomes. His outcomes are far superior to the expected national outcome benchmark. He will tailor your surgery and aftercare to ensure it meets the complexity of your cataract. This may include additional planned procedures or medicines during or after cataract surgery to ensure a successful outcome.
Factors which make cataract surgery and its outcome complicated include:
- Very high prescriptions
- Glaucoma or related conditions such as narrow angle or pseudoexfoliation
- Corneal conditions such as keratoconus and corneal dystrophies
- Previous trauma
- Previous eye surgery
- Use of particular medications (Doxazosin or Tamsulosin or Warfarin)
People with such complex cataracts require meticulous surgical planning and extensive counseling.
