Life gets more fun after cataract surgery

There are many aspects of life that we can't control. After Cataract Surgery, patients may be able to ditch or diminish their reliance on glasses for reading, computer work, watching television and driving. Many patients find that they can resume favorite hobbies.

These types of spectacles reduce contrast sensitivity and depth perception. People are less likely to need multifocal lenses after cataract surgery. Indeed, several studies suggest that cataract removal can reduce the risk of falls.
