Ophthalmology & Optometry/Ocular Rosacea and cataract surgery?
Expert: Optom. Amit Sharma - 1/23/2014
Question My opthomologist said my cataracts are growing and possibly will need to be operated on soon. He said there is a chance of infection, which I have had in the one eye a few times. Should I see an eye hospital or would the local Dr. be OK with this operation?
Answer Dear Faye Geiser
Though cataract surgery is very simple and a local doctor can operate, But considering presence of Ocular
rosacea I would suggest that a good Eye or multispeciality Hospital would be a better option then a local Ophthalmologist.
