Q: I have had cataract surgery already, but with older monofocal lens implanted? Can I come in, to have my lens replaced, and if I can't have it replaced, is there any way that I could improve my eyesight now that I have had cataract surgery already?
1. In general, we do prefer to put in the advanced (Forever Young Lens) in the initial cataract surgery, since a lens exchange will require another intraocular (opening eye) surgery and we generally try to avoid that for safety reasons.
2. We do, however, CAN help some of these patients (who have had cataract surgery and older lens implanted already) to improve eyesight, by using an extraocular (outside of the eye) procedure such as 3D LASIK, or 3D Laser Kamra.
