In brief: Disadvantages

Disadvantages: may still need glasses, may need a Yag laser after implant; risk of high pressure after surgery usually unrelated to a well placed implant; other general risks of surgery are rare/very rare: risk of infection, loss of vision, loss of eye, death.

In brief: Intraocular lenses

Intraocular lenses are used after almost all cataract surgeries.
They can also be used to correct prescription in patients not needing cataract surgery. In rare cases, the implant can cause increased pressure in the eye, cataract, or other problems.
