Cataract Surgery FAQs

Our team at Eye Group has put together a list of cataract surgery questions that we often run into from our patients. Patients with cataracts typically have many questions after receiving a diagnosis or when the surgery has been completed. If you would like to schedule a visit with one of our eye doctors, our office is located inside the Madison Health Plex Performance Center.

Can Cataracts Be Prevented?

Once you have this condition, it cannot be reversed. However, there are steps you can take to reduce your risk of cataracts. One is to eat a well-balanced, healthy diet full of omega-three fatty acids and plenty of antioxidants. Also, having UV protection from a pair of high-quality sunglasses can slow the progression.

Is There Pain with Cataract Surgery?

Local anesthetics are used in a numbing eye drop to prevent pain or discomfort during the surgery. The whole process can take less than 30 minutes. Afterward, it is normal to have some mild soreness or increased sensations for a day or two. Afterward, you can use over-the-counter medication to help with the side effects. We can also suggest stronger medications for pain if you are still having issues.

Will I Still Need To Wear Glasses After Cataract Surgery?

Typically, you will have clear vision once you have an implant, but if you wore glasses before, you may still need to wear them. We will discuss what to expect after the surgery and work with you to establish your vision goals.

Is Cataract Surgery Risky?

Having surgery of any kind always involves some risk, but complications with cataracts are rare. There could be inflammation or infections in seldom occurrences.

Who Typically Needs Cataract Surgery?

Most people who get cataracts are over the age of 60, but cases are more likely as you get older. Nearly half of all adults over 75 have a cataract in at least one eye.
