You should opt for a cataract surgery when the cataract is causing blurred vision and is affecting your daily life. We provide cataract surgery referrals in Red Deer. It is not essential to get a surgery if you have a cataract but it is not leading to blurred vision. If you have cataracts in both your eyes that require surgery, the surgeries will not be performed together for both the eyes but will be done several weeks apart. If surgery is done on both eyes, there is a high possibility of complications that can affect both your eyes. The biggest complication is that of infection.
Earlier, the lens which has a cataract could not be removed from your eye if it was not in the advanced stages of cataract. However, with technological advancements, you may not have to wait till the cataract is ripe. The cataract can today be removed at any stage of development.
