Question:
I always suffer scar tissue after any type of surgeries—even after ear piercing. Is it possible to develop scar tissue after cataract surgery?      

Answer:
Your tendency for scarring of your skin is not relevant to cataract surgery. You should not be concerned because there is no skin incision involved.
