Cataract and Presbyopia

Cataract usually affects elderly people and is often linked to presbyopia, that is the diminished ability to focus on near objects (it can be experienced, for example, while reading without glasses).

At any rate, choosing to go under a standard cataract surgery will lead to presbyopia: in other words, if you choose to see better far objects without glasses you’re going to need glasses anyway to be able to properly read or use the computer.

Today, thanks to the new intraocular bifocal, trifocal and multifocal lens, through cataract surgery, it is possible to correct presbyopia and properly see far and near object without glasses.
