In most cases, cataracts are fairly simple to manage. Usually, all it takes is changing your glasses, consistently wearing a good pair of sunglasses, and better lighting when you’re reading.
However, for severe cases, surgery may be required to remove cataracts. Typically, cataracts do not harm the eyes so this would only apply for patients who can no longer perform day-to-day activities.
Cataract surgery entails removing the lens from the eye and replacing it with a new artificial lens that is specifically made for each patient. Cataract surgery is a common procedure and is safe with little to no implications.
