Rights and Permissions

A diabetic and asthmatic patient was planned to undergo femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery in his left eye. At the end of femtosecond procedure, he developed breathlessness due to noncardiogenic pulmonary edema. The second procedure was postponed for 3 weeks till he received fitness for undergoing further ocular surgery. The second surgery was uncomplicated. There was no corneal decompensation, exaggerated inflammation, intraocular pressure spike, diabetic retinopathy progression, or postoperative cystoid macular edema till 6 months of follow-up. Although not recommended, such a delay may be unavoidable. The delayed surgery is unlikely to compromise the surgical outcome or increase the chances of intra- or postoperative complications.
