Can cataract surgery make my macular degeneration (AMD) worse?

Can cataract surgery make my macular degeneration (AMD) worse?

The jury is still out here.  Speak to your surgeon but most surgeons will wait until the cataract absolutely needs to be done if there are macular concerns.

There is a school-of-thought that laser enhanced cataract surgery (femtosecond laser) is safer for AMD patients because it introduces less energy into the eye with therefore less chance of retinal inflammation.
