This information is not intended to replace the advice of your doctor. MedSelfEd, Inc. disclaims any liability for the decisions you make based on this information.
Your doctor understands that all medical care benefits from close collaboration between physician and patient -- so be sure to review, with your doctor, all risks and alternatives and make sure you understand the reasons behind the recommendation for this particular procedure.

Now let's talk in detail about the procedure your doctor has recommended. That particular recommendation was based on a number of factors:

  • the state of your health,

  • the severity of your condition,

  • an assessment of alternative treatments or procedures and finally,

  • the risks associated with doing nothing at all.

And remember, the final decision is up to you. No one can force you to undergo a surgical procedure against your will.

When it comes to treating a cataract, lens replacement is surgery is almost always the best option. The only alternative to surgery is to do nothing and to adjust your lifestyle to compensate for reduced vision. Because cataracts are a part of the aging process, they cannot clear up by themselves.

It's rare these days for a physician to recommend any other treatment for a cataract than to surgically remove the damaged lens and to insert an artificial replacement.
