LASIK eye surgery involves reshaping your cornea to correct a wide range of refractive errors – providing you with clear, sharp vision that either eliminates or greatly reduces your dependence on glasses and contact lenses. However, LASIK cannot prevent the development of cataracts later in life, since cataracts are a problem with the eye’s lens, not the cornea.
Because LASIK involves reshaping your cornea, you will need to consult with an experienced eye surgeon before undergoing cataract surgery in the future. Once your cornea is reshaped during LASIK, your cataract surgeon will need to perform a careful examination in order to determine the correct degree of power needed for your intraocular lens (IOL) – the artificial lens that is implanted during cataract surgery.
If an inexperienced surgeon takes the incorrect measurements, your vision may become out of focus following cataract surgery, requiring additional procedures to restore ideal vision. Thankfully, Dr. Khanna’s extensive experience with both LASIK and cataract surgery has equipped him with the skill necessary to accurately evaluate the changes in your eyes caused by LASIK surgery, ensuring the best possible vision with your IOL after cataract surgery. After removing the cataract, Dr. Khanna will perform a manifest refraction to determine the appropriate lens power for the IOL. Based on this information, the correct IOL will be implanted. You can read more about this topic in the bestseller book on cataract surgery.
