Q1: Can Cataracts Cause Blindness Yesof course if cataracts are left untreatedthis might lead to the continual loss of vision which sooner leads to legal blindness or even total blindness.  When people hear that the word "blindness" they assume that severe vision loss is permanent and which cannot be cured. When blindness is caused by cataracts vision can usually be restored successfully with cataract surgery and by implanting intraocular lens IOLand the outcome of the modern cataract surgery is so good that a person who was legally blind and undergone a surgery is able to seethe things perfectly and is well ready to drive without eyeglasses after cataract surgery and IOL implantation.  To see the good results of cataract surgery it is recommended to take up the surgery before the cataract causes low vision or legal blindness because advanced cataracts might cause severe vision loss and they are more difficult to remove which increases the risk of cataract surgery complications.

Q2: Will I Need Glasses After Cataract Surgery It depends on the type of surgery you undergo.If you choose to take standard cataract surgery with intraocular lens IOL implantation then likely you will require reading glasses and computer glasses or some other special-purpose eye wear afterward depends on visual requirements.  At the same time there are also cataract surgery options which can reduce or sometimes even eliminate the need for glasses. For examplethe surgery which is the combination of laser cataract surgery and premium implantable lenses commonly known as multi focal IOLs and holding IOLs will give you excellent outcomes that help many people to stay free from glasses.  Another type of surgery called mono vision cataract surgery in which the power of the single vision IOL is personalized in both the eyes which helps in expanding the range of clear vision when both the eyes are used together. In this process the dominant eye provides sharper distance vision and the other eyes which non-dominant provides sharper near vision. There is another option tooand it is to have a secondary refractive procedure after cataract surgery.

Example- Implantation of a presbyopia-correcting corneal inlay in one of the eyes after surgery helps in improving near vision which reduces the need for reading glasses.  Its not easy to have minor refractive errors after cataract surgerybut if some errors happen after the surgery it may be too insignificant to warrant additional surgerystill find some blurriness in tasks especially like driving at night.Generally its a good idea to wear glasses after cataract surgery. To make sure you seethe best at all distances progressive lenses are the best solution.  Photo chromic lenses can be used if you have a problem of sensitivity to light and these glasses help in darken the sunlight usually and these glasses are available in a different kind of lens and designs including progressive lenses.  Make sure that you choose glasses where the lenses are anti-reflective coated so itwill give you the best comfort and clarity by eliminating annoying reflections in your glasses.  If you want completely from eyeglasses ask your cataract surgeon to discuss available options and choose the best for your visual needs during a pre-op eye exam and cataract surgery consultation.

slide 6:

Q3: What Happens If Cataracts Are Left Untreated In many situation cataracts will continue to worsen over time if they are not treatedthey may cause a continual reduction of vision. Driving can be difficult whichis very dangerous.  There are chances that a person might become totally blind if cataracts are not treated.  Its impossible fora doctor to accurately predict how quickly cataracts might worsen. If you notice your vision is getting worse day by day dont wait for your next regularly scheduled eye exam see your eye doctor immediately and have your vision checked.  In few cases change of your eyeglasses might improve your visionand also by applying the anti-reflective coating to your eyeglasses might help you in providing a noticeable improvement in your night driving vision if you have every mild cataracts. If cataracts are left untreated they might turn into  "hyper-mature" where the  condition might make them more difficult to remove and leads to cataract surgery complications.

slide 7:

Usually for best results cataract surgery should be done as soon as possible after vision problems develop instead of waiting many months or years and that worsen the situation. CONCLUSION If you feel that an individual eye has a cataract and resultant blurred vision that makes it difficult to do anything he or she wants and needs to do it is time to consider cataract surgery. If there are cataracts in both eyes that require surgery the surgeries are usually performed several weeks apart.
