Cataract Surgery Results
Research shows that over 95 percent of the more than 3 million cataract surgeries performed in the U.S. each year result in improved vision without complications.5
Also, advances in technology and techniques have enabled surgeons to effectively correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism with cataract surgery, reducing the need for prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses after surgery like the effect of LASIK and other elective refractive surgery performed on eyes without cataracts.
The use of modern multifocal IOLs can also reduce the need for reading glasses after cataract surgery.
