Am I suitable for cataract surgery?
If you have a little blurriness but no difficulty carrying out everyday tasks, surgery may not be necessary. However, cataracts will get worse over time. Because the symptoms are gradual and painless, many people don’t realise they have a cataract until it becomes advanced and a mature cataract is more difficult to remove. The indication for cataract surgery varies from person to person – people with highly visually demanding jobs might choose to have their cataracts operated on at a much earlier stage.
If you want to enjoy all the benefits of good vision, it makes sense to get your cataracts removed sooner rather than later so you can:
- Improve your golf or bowling performance and enjoyment of other activities
- Enjoy a better reading, knitting and TV watching experience
- In most cases be free of spectacles for distance vision and possibly reading too with the use of premium multifocal implants.
Reduce risk of falls and accidents.
