Can I Have Cataract Surgery If I Develop Cataracts Sometime After Having Laser Eye Surgery?
A cataract is a condition where proteins that are naturally present in the lens of the eye coalesce. If you have a cataract the lens will become opaque, your vision will start to cloud and your eyesight will progressively blur.
If you need to have your cataracts done after Laser Eye Surgery, you can. Your cataract surgeon will ask you your ocular history and knowing about the state of your eyes before having Laser Eye Surgery and the state of your eyes after Laser Eye Surgery is important for him to calculate exactly how to do the cataract surgery successfully.
