After cataract removal and laser surgery, I need vitreotomy surgery--is it safe to do all these things?

Yes, if indicated. It is safe to do all these operations on the same eye if there is a medical reason to do so. Your doctor, perhaps with the input from a retinal consultant, will explain the reasons the procedures are required, what is hoped to be accomplished, and the associated risks.
Yes/no. Depends on the situation. No surgery is completely safe. If needed to repair and rehab the eye, you may not have much choice. Sounds like you may have erm (epi-retinal membrane). Take advice from your surgeon.

Yes. Sometimes you need a yag laser after cataract surgery to reduce posterior capsule opacification and clear up vision (besides the other laser lasik to help with correcting residual refractive error). Read more...
Yes. Lasik or prk can be done to reduce need for glasses after cataract surgery. Other types of laser surgery can also be done. Nearly 50% of patients have a yag laser capsulotomy to remove lens cells from the lens implant after cataract surgery.

Is it typical to have a refraction done before laser surgery following cataract surgery. I had a routine eye exam with refraction 3 months ago.

Routine Pre-Op exam. As with cataract surgery, the same goes for laser treatment that vision must be compromised both subjectively and objectively to be a suitable candidate as well as approved treatment covered by insurance. To justify necessity for treatment, it is important to refract prior to check visual acuity, and also thereafter to verify that the cause for visual disturbance has been accurately targeted.

Typical to have a refraction before laser surgery on eye? Cataract surgery 5-6 years ago. Had refraction as part of routine eye exam 3 months ago.

Yes. Refraction can avoid unnecessary yag capsulotomy. Only when a refraction doesn't improve the vision assuming no other ocular pathology is yag laser capsulotomy indicated. It usually is the physician that doesn't first eliminate a refractive error as the cause of reduced visual acuity before performing yag capsulotomy is possibly doing unnecessary surgery. Read more...
