Daily life before refractive cataract surgery (laser cataract surgery) becomes increasingly difficult because the cataract reduces the quality of vision. This affects your ability to drive, particularly at night, as you can become disorientated by glare and halos around headlights. Cataracts also reduce your ability to see subtitles on the TV or the score when watching sports on television. Your near vision also starts to deteriorate at this stage in life. Reading small print becomes difficult and requires more light. This can cause a lot of frustration and drive people to search for a solution. Laser cataract surgery is an excellent place to start if you\u2019d like to be free of cataracts AND reduce or eliminate your dependence on glasses.
