Does cataract surgery hurt?

Does cataract surgery hurt?

It would be extremely unusual for a patient to say in a follow-up visit that cataract removal hurt.  It has happened over my 25 years … but I could count the number of times on one hand.

By far the most common discomfort is a scratchy feeling that often persists for a couple of months post-surgery.

Most folks that reported that they experienced discomfort during the procedure say that it was an anesthetic issue … not enough or perhaps too long between drops and surgery.  This was quickly rectified with increased

anesthetic.
