Cataract Surgery Results
Results of Cataract Surgery
After cataract surgery nearly all patients report a significant improvement in their vision. Cataract extraction and the replacement of the damaged eye lens has a 99% success rate, with many patients experiencing an improvement to their pre-cataract vision as well as an end to the symptoms of a cataract.
Most patients see the following results after cataract operations:
- The ability to see in focus
- Bright lights no longer cause a problem
- Colours and contrast can be differentiated
- No more blurred or cloudy vision
- Improvement in far-sightedness or short-sightedness vision
For many people the vision improvements after cataract suurgery is immediate. Often patients need new prescription glasses or contact lenses to correct pre-existing vision problems unrelated to the vision damage caused by cataracts. New glasses can be prescribed if necessary a few weeks after your cataract surgery, once your eye has adjusted to the new intraocular lens.
