Are glasses necessary after cataract surgery?
Will my vision be back to perfect again after the surgery? Will I still need glasses?
Hi Chee Meng,
D2D. Using advanced biometric technologies and the latest equipment at our centre, my objective is for every patient to be independent of spectacles after they undergo cataract surgery.
At my clinic, our team goes through a very stringent and meticulous process of measuring the biometry of each patient’s eye. We use multiple different types of formulae to choose the most appropriate lens for the patient’s needs.
However, a patient may still need reading glasses if they are best suited for monofocal lenses which corrects his short-sightedness (myopia) or far-sightedness (hyperopia) but not his presbyopia.
A patient with astigmatism, but was not suitable for toric lens will also require astigmatic glasses to correct his vision after cataract surgery.
