LASIK is eye surgery that corrects nearsightedness by using a laser to reshape the eye's cornea, while cataract surgery replaces a cloudy lens from your eye with an artificial lens to restore clear vision.
LASIK is a type of refractive surgery for the correction of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.
The LASIK surgery is performed by an ophthalmologist who uses a laser or microkeratome to reshape the eye's cornea in order to improve visual acuity.
For most people, LASIK provides a long-lasting alternative to eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Cataract surgery is the removal of the natural lens of the eye that has developed an opacification, which is referred to as a cataract.
Many peoples' first symptoms are strong glare from lights and small light sources at night, along with reduced acuity at low light levels.
During cataract surgery, a patient's cloudy natural cataract lens is removed and replaced with a synthetic lens to restore the lens's transparency. Following surgical removal of the natural lens, an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) implant is inserted.
Well over 90% of operations are successful in restoring useful vision, with a low complication rate.
Theoretically, you should be able to see better after 1 day of your surgery. Nevertheless, it is common for your vision to be slightly blurry or unclear for the first few weeks as your eyes are adjusting. A good guideline would be that the higher your inital prescription, the longer it will take to recover from the LASIK surgery.
