Modern cataract and corneal surgery both tend to be extremely safe. However, complications may occur, during or after the operation. Parker Cornea is a specialty center for the correction of these problems, which are referred from other doctors around the world.
These conditions and others like them are special, because they are unexpected complications arising from prior eye surgery. Parker cornea specializes in the correction of these problems, which require specialized instrumentation, training, staff, and technology to accomplish.
Wrong power, dislocated, or poorly performing lens
During cataract surgery, a lens is usually placed in the patient’s eye, which is intended to be permanent and to remain forever. Occasionally, however, this lens can become a problem. If so, the lens may need to be removed and replaced with a more suitable one.
Complications from prior LASIK or RK
Rarely, refractive surgery like LASIK, PRK, and RK can cause severe corneal damage, often not diagnosed until many years later, even if the original procedure was performed perfectly.
Failed previous transplant
Corneal transplants may fail, sometimes immediately after surgery, sometimes many years later. Re-operating to repair or replace the failed transplant may be very difficult, even for experienced surgeons.
