What is the percentage of people that experience complications ?

The visual outcomes and rate of complications vary from center to center. At the very minimum, you should ask whether the center you are being evaluated at track their own results every year. This is preferable to relying on general numbers. Tracking outcomes and complication rates allow surgeons to contnuously improve and fine tune their results.
