Side effects of surgery for CATARACT in eye.

Resolved Question:

Dear Doc,

My father is 50 years old patientold. Recently through eye checkup, we found that there is a mild cataract formation on both the eyes. So a surgery is to be done. And he does not want to use Spectacles at all. In Agarwal Eye Hospital, they have suggested him to go for Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery with replacement of natural lens by symfony lens. We are well aware of its cost. Please tell us about the surgery, its long time benefits and whether it's appropriate for him to go ahead with it. The doctor assures us of life long proper vision without any side effects or the usage of specs.

Thank you for your query at
The package given is excellent , the promise made is true , but cannot comment on life long . Remember the results of cataract surgery are very good , if no systemic complaints are their . So i take the word life long with a pinch of salt.
