Hello! My father will undergo cataract surgery next week. He is fifty seven and his problems with his vision increased rapidly due to his diabetes. Since he is still a very active person the surgery is more then necessary for him. His problems started to affect his level of independence and he was no longer able to function normally. My sister says he will us he is going to wear bifocals after cataract surgery. Is this so?

Hello! Most people need to wear glasses after the surgery due to astigmatism which is a focusing problem that occurs after the surgery. Bifocals are glasses with corrective lenses containing regions with two distinct optical powers. This helps the patients to see things at intermediate distances or near distances. Your father’s doctor will tell him when his eyes are healed enough for glasses. There is also opportunity for eye implant which offers cataract patients to be less dependent of eyeglasses. Of course, those implants are not recommended for all patients and your father has to consult his eye surgeon about it.
