How often do complications occur with the insertion of a conversion lens?
Placing a conversion lens is a relatively minor procedure and is generally safe. However, the treatment, like other medical procedures, is not 100% risk-free. Despite the fact that the treatment is performed by a very experienced surgeon, the possibility of a complication can never be ruled out with medical interventions. In addition, every body is different. Fortunately, complications that can occur are often treatable.
If during the preliminary examination it appears that you are at an increased risk of complications, we will of course discuss this with you first. You can then make the right decision in consultation with the doctor. If the doctor considers the risk too great, he may advise not to do the treatment.
There are complications that can arise shortly after the procedure, such as an infection. This is a very rare complication and occurs with us less than 0.001% times. There may be an over or under correction of the strength deviation, in this case this can in most cases be corrected with a retreatment. Other complications that can occur are early cataract formation and halos.
During our extensive preliminary investigation and the written information we provide you, we will of course inform you more about this.
