Cataract surgery and dysphotopsia

Cataract surgery and dysphotopsia

Dysphotopsia can occur after cataract surgery, this is seen after surgery due to reflections related to the new lens in the eye. The new lens is flatter and has different edge characteristics than the previous cloudy human lens. Furthermore the postion of the new lens is slightly different than the old lens now removed. Patients notice a curved reflection or shaddow on the edge of the vision. One has to be carefull in diagnosing dysphotopsia as it may be confused with a retinal break. Retinal breaks and retinal traction can occur after cataract surgery due to the disturbance of the vitreous in the eye during surgery.
