Hello
1. During retina detachment surgery,we put silicone oil in eye....this surgery is necessary to remove silicon oil....if not removed,there is risk of emulsification of oil which will further damage the eye

Don't worry...this surgery is necessary

Cataract is common after Retinal detachment surgery with silicone oil. You will have to undergo cataract surgery with Intra ocular lens implantation and silicone oil removal. Take the opinion of a second Doctor if you aren't satisfied.

You can not have silicone oil permanently in your eye. It has its lifespan which varies from 6 to 12 months. Once it starts to get emulsify it creates more problem. Developing cataract after retina detachment surgery is not uncommon. So silicone oil removal and cataract surgery can be planned in a single sitting. Vision postoperative will depend on the strength and viability of the retina. I advise you to undergo surgery for the same.

Hello, I went through your query, it is hard to comment in this situation with out knowing your complete medical history and present clinical condition. Since you mentioned cataract, of there is cataract you need surgery. If you are not satisfied your doctor please ask him direct questions. Or else you can always take 2nd opinion from another doctor in person with all your reports.
