Can I Have Cataract Surgery If I Develop Cataracts Sometime After Having Laser Eye Surgery?

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.
