Possible risks

After-effects are few: haloes, light reflections, etc.
The presence of the implant inside the eye may cause a decrease in the number of the endothelial cells and may thus in the long term affect the clarity of the cornea. In the absence of complications this loss appears to be limited to 10%. However, patients must undergo regular check-ups (once a year) with endothelial cell counts. The implant can be removed easily if this proves necessary. As in all intra-ocular surgery there is a slight risk of infection.
