Question:
Can you have cataract surgery on an eye that has had a corneal transplant?

Answer:
Absolutely—however there are numerous precautions that should be taken to protect your transplant and this procedure should, in my opinion, only be undertaken by a surgeon experienced in managing each of these conditions.
