Because cataracts develop slowly, it may take a while to notice that it is getting more difficult to read or drive at night. Patients may just gradually stop doing the activities they enjoy without knowing why. Having cataracts may even contribute to depression or anxiety. When patients have their cataracts removed, they can expect to do many of their favorite activities again. Patients who had cataract surgery had a 16 percent decrease in the risk of hip fracture during the next year. If the patients had severe cataracts, the risk of hip fracture decreased by 23 percent. Also, those who had cataract surgery had a 40 percent reduction in mortality risk compared to those who did not have cataract surgery.
If the doctor decided that this surgery is needed, he/she will have different tests to choose the best lens and type of the surgery for the patient.
