Question: After cataract surgery would you have to have a change of eyeglass lens or lens implant at some time latter as you get older?
Answer: Once you have Cataract Surgery and a Lens Implant, generally, unless you develop some other type of eye disease that impacts the refractive error of your eyes-such as a corneal disease or diabetic macular edema-it is not likely that your optical prescription will change too much. In any event the nature of the optical changes that might occur rarely necessitate a change of Lens Implant but could require a small change in an eyeglass lens prescription over time as the eye changes corneal curvature or other parameter.
