My daughter is a surgery RN and she has attended hundreds of cataract surgeries and she doesn't think it can happen either. She's going to ask the doctors about it if she gets the chance. She thinks the lady with the damaged lens has something else going on. After a year or so of having mine, I did have to have the YAG laser to break up some kind of membrane that builds up which is common.
