Dr. Rick :

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

Dr. Rick :

After your cataract is removed and a plastic lens placed into your eye the cataract does not come back. As such there is no need for a second surgery or a second lens replacement as the first lens is designed to last for a lifetime.

Dr. Rick :

That being said, there are some rare instances where the intraocular lens can cause pain. In these cases it is possible for the plastic lens to be either re-positioned inside your eye so as to stop the pain, or for the old lens to be removed and another lens inserted. In some, very rare, cases it is not possible for a second lens to be placed inside your eye and in these instances vision can be corrected with either contact lenses or thick glasses.

Dr. Rick :

Since it is rare for eye pain to be caused by your intraocular lens I suggest you have a complete eye examination by your surgeon or another ophthalmologist to get to the bottom of what is causing your pain.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?
