Question re: changing IOL lens shortly after it was inserted

Cataract surgery 2 weeks ago. Wrong IOL was inserted after cataract removed.. How much more dangerous is the surgery - this coming week - to change the IOL than the original surgery that removed the cataract.

Totally depends on the skill of the surgeon and how often they do IOL removals.  From my reading, most Doctors try NOT to do them unless absolutely necessary due to the risks.
Do lots of research before you make a decision, but don't wait too long.
