Will I have more night glare after cataract surgery?
Maybe – The type of implant that you select / receive will influence night vision. Some lenses are optically designed to help correct the aberrations associated with night glare. Common post cataract surgery night vision issues are: glare, arcs, haloes, flashes, blur.
In some cases folks’ pupils are larger and/or less responsive post-surgery and this change effects the optics of the eye.
If you are in need of cataract surgery ... then you probably have a glare-causing cataract. Your post surgical level of glare should be less than your current!
Important – A great pair of new lenses can do wonders to reduce glare. It is not always the implant’s optics to blame! You may just have a bit of residual prescription to be corrected.
