Fortunately, refractive lens exchange is one of the safest and most common procedures performed worldwide. However, no procedure is without risk.
Over 99% of patients have a very smooth and uncomplicated recovery. A very small percentage has a mild post-operative complication that delays the healing but does not result in 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 serious complication such as an infection is extremely rare, less than one in 5000 people.
