Cataract Surgery and Full Blown Macular Degeneration

by Doreen Durocher
(Sun City, AZ)

My sister had a cataract removed 3 weeks ago (she has some amount of macular degeneration) in both eyes, and had to go and get shots in the eyeballs every couple months.

She went back to the doctor for a follow up. Seems the lens shattered and he said she had full blown macular degeneration in that eye (and it could spread to the other eye). He told her to go home and make plans that she would not be driving much longer..

Can anything be done or was this an error?

Can something like this happen with cataract surgery??

Thanking you.

Doreen
