Dr. Raizman's Cataract Surgery Results

Cataract surgery results for Dr. Raizman are almost overwhelmingly successful. Dr. Raizman has more up-to-date information on the cumulative results of his surgery than almost any other ophthalmologist in the country. He has developed one of the largest cataract surgery computer database files for an individual surgeon. This database file now comprises over 15,000 surgical procedures. Highlights are listed below.

Vision Improvement

A significant improvement in vision after surgery is reported by over 95% of Dr. Raizman's patients. This is particularly impressive given the referral nature of Dr. Raizman's practice. Many complicated cataract cases are referred to Dr. Raizman and his overall results include these challenging cases, as well as his routine procedures.

Capsule Tears

Posterior capsule tears can occur during cataract surgery. Published reports often cite an incidence of 2.0% - 5.0% as acceptable. In a recent review of over 400 eyes, Dr. Raizman's rate of posterior capsule tears was < 0.25%, (less than one quarter of one percent).


Infection is a potentially serious complication of any surgical procedure. Published reviews of eye infection (endophthalmitis) after cataract surgery in the United States often cite an incidence of one per thousand or higher. Dr. Raizman's rate of endophthalmitis is significantly less.

You should know the surgical results of your cataract surgeon! Be sure to ask! Dr. Raizman is proud of his exemplary results and is pleased to review them with you. For a list of additional questions to ask your cataract surgeon, please click here.
