No. A posterior haemorrhage is not a complication of cataract surgery, it’s the result of an old injury that has been neglected or ignored for several years. If you have had no previous treatment for this issue then another surgeon should be consulted before undergoing any procedure that may aggravate your condition further.
How can I tell if my cataracts are only on the lens?
If there are both central and peripheral cataracts present, then either one or both would need to be removed to restore vision. Cataract surgery removes all parts of the lens so finding out which one(s) contain your problem will enable your surgeon to decide whether to remove them all together or leave some behind – although doing nothing at all may also lead other problems in future as these lenses continue degenerating over time due to age-related changes in their structure and composition (see comments below). After removing any involved areas, the remaining healthy ones are often examined under high magnification by an ophthalmologist who can confirm whether they too are affected by disease – although this test usually needs preoperative preparation first because it requires removal of tissue from inside the eye unlike routine dilated pupils where drops can be used instead.
When should I get cataract surgery?
It depends on many factors including how advanced your cataracts already are when investigated by screening tests such as slit lamp examination ($250-$500 per eye), visual acuity ($1,
