Combined Cataract Surgery
Combined Cataract SurgeryCataract surgery can be done in combination with other procedures when there are pre-existing eye conditions.
In the case of concurrent glaucoma, Cataract removal may be done with a trabeculectomy to improve the eye pressure lowering effect and glaucoma control.
Concurrent Pathological Floaters
In the case of concurrent pathological floaters, Cataract removal may be done with vitrectomy to remove any severe floaters.
Concurrent Epiretinal Membrane
In the case of concurrent Epiretinal Membrane, Cataract removal may be done with a vitrectomy and membrane removal to address both issues at the same setting.
Treatment of only either and not both will result in a poorer than expected visual outcome. As such, it is important to have a thorough eye examination before any surgery so that the best treatment may be performed for your eye in its entirety.
