Cataract Surgery After Corneal Implant and Radial Keratotomy
August 3, 2011
I had radial keratotomy (RK) done in 1980 in both eyes. My eye sight was about 20/30 with glasses. After RK my vision had been stable with glasses, but complications had started in 90s. I had corneal implant on my left eye in 2000. After corneal implant I became very near sighted (-9.00 contact + glasses).
Now I am having cataract surgery and assume that new implant lens will replace that-9.00 contact plus my glasses prescription.
Would I see better after my cataract surgery? How much improvement in eye sight is reasonably to be expected?
