Refractive error and cataracts are two most common eye problems that we see, with refractive error starting to create problems from a very young age, and cataracts coming on after an age of around 60. Although this is not definite; refractive error may come in the late adult stage, and younger adults may get cataracts too. But, going with the general way things work, almost every individual who suffers from a refractive error in the teens or adulthood goes in for a Lasik surgery to get rid of his spectacles and contact lenses. Then, when he grows older, he starts suffering from cataracts, which is why he wishes to undergo a cataract surgery too. But here, the question that arises is whether he can undergo a cataract surgery after he has undergone a Lasik procedure. If you are one such confused individual, you are at the right place to clear off your doubt.
