Seeing Clearly: The Limits of Lifestyle Cataract Surgery and How to Make an Informed Decision

Are you considering cataract surgery but worried about making a mistake in choosing the right treatment or deciding where to go? Look no further! In this post, we’ll cover everything you need to know.

Cataract surgery, replaces the natural crystalline lens of the eye with a new implant. The main purpose of these procedures is to either remove the cloudy lens if you already have developed a cataract or to correct a refractive problem, eg, short sightedness, long sightedness or astigmatism.

But before you book your surgery, it’s important to know that there are limits to the procedure due to the function of other parts of the eye. During your assessment, a detailed medical history will be taken to determine if you’re a suitable candidate for the surgery. This will include questions about any previous eye problems, such as lazy eye or squint, as well as your general medical history, including the presence of diabetes or any other condition that could affect the health of your eyes.

While the surgery can reduce the need for glasses, some patients may still require them for specific activities, depending on the type of implant chosen. It’s essential to discuss your specific condition in more detail with us to understand what to expect after the surgery.

At the end of the day, cataract surgery can be a life-changing procedure that improves your quality of life. However, it’s crucial to do your research to help you make an informed decision.
