Can you reverse cataracts without surgery?
You can’t reverse cataracts without surgery.
Cataracts are progressive in nature. The progression rates differ between everybody, so some people can have cataracts for years and do not require surgery. Still, most of the time, people will eventually require cataract surgery if they’ve been diagnosed with a cataract.
When is the right time to have cataract surgery?
You only require cataract surgery if they’re causing problems for you, so the timing of getting cataract surgery really depends on you as an individual and when you’d like to have cataract surgery done. There’s no wrong or right time to get it done.
The sooner you have it done, the sooner you get rid of the cataract, and the longer you have better vision.
The longer you delay the surgery, the longer you’ll have poor vision from the cataract. We always encourage patients to get it done sooner rather than later. This is because we want you to experience the benefits of cataract surgery for as long as possible.
