Fortunately, refractive cataract surgery is one of the safest and most common procedures performed worldwide. However, no procedure is completely without risk and over 99 percent of patients will have a very smooth and uncomplicated post-operative course. A very small percent will have a mild post-operative complication which will delay the healing, but not result in any permanent damage.
For instance, some individuals may experience a prolonged course of inflammation in the eye that may take a bit longer to heal. The risk of a more serious complication such as an infection is extremely remote and is less than one in five thousand people.
