for Dr. Rick

My friend has a wrinkle in her eye and you had said previously that after the surgery a cateract would form. She has had cateract surgery in this eye. Would a new one form?

Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

That is a very good question and the answer is No.

Dr. Rick :

Once her natural lens (cataract) has been removed and replaced with an intraocular lens there is no risk of the cataract coming back.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?

Dr. Rick :

And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)
