I posted previously about needing two doctors for my cataract surgery and apparently that's still the case, but I thought I should start a different thread about the exact type of cataracts I have.
I was diagnosed with bilateral posterior polar cataracts with a 99% chance of rupture or a hole developing during this surgery and consequently needing a second operation from a retinal specialist. Needless to say I'm a little concerned.
Apparently these types of cataracts are very rare if not the rarest form of cataracts there are with a high chance of complications during surgery.
Has anyone had any experience with this type of cataract and what were the results from any surgery?
I'm trying to find out the success rate with this type of surgery but googling only comes up with how complex the surgery is and doesn't really say how successful this surgery is.
If this post should be with the other thread I started, please feel free to move it there.
