• Is it normal to need lower power reading glasses after cataract surgery?


    Question:

    Is it normal to have a lower reading glasses prescription after cataract surgery? My eyes are completely healed from the surgery.


    Answer:

    The reading glasses prescription depends on the power of the lens implant (intraocular lens or IOL) that was placed inside your eye. Your reading glass power is inconsequential. What’s more important is that your reading vision is satisfactory while wearing the glasses.
