After the removal of a cataract in one or both eyes, too many patients to count report of a huge difference in their quality of vision, the strength of their eyesight, and improvement to their quality of their life. 

If you are considering having cataract surgery but are being held back from making the initial consultation because of worries, fears, or you are simply questioning whether or not cataract removal will make as much difference as people say, then this article is for you. 

Here, for your reading pleasure and information, are the top four most incredible differences before and after having a cataract removed. 

1. A More Relaxed & Enjoyable Driving Experience

If you usually wear prescribed glasses for driving both during the day and in the dark, it could well be the case that after cataract surgery, you will be able to drive without them for many, many years to come. 

Additionally, you may not have to wear your glasses when driving, but you will also be able to relax significantly more when driving and enjoy the adventure and freedom that driving brings. 

2. An Improved Posture & Sense Of Balance

As you will probably already be aware, your vision is directly linked to your balance and vice-versa.

This is why people who experience motion sickness not just as a child but into adulthood are likely to have an imbalance of liquid in their eyes so that when they are in a moving vehicle, their body is unable to level itself to what they are seeing. 

Cataract removal works in the same way, and as your vision instantly improves, it is likely that your overall balance and strength of posture will improve as well. 

3. Brighter Colors & A Wider Variety Of Depths, Textures & Tones

Cataracts are essentially cloudy blurs and haze that appear on the surface of your natural lenses. Therefore, they can soon begin to significantly reduce the variety of colors and shades you are able to detect, which can be frustrating to live with. 

One of the most incredible benefits of cataract surgery is the ability to see and differentiate colors much more easily, and whereas your old lenses will have become slightly yellow or brown therefore make things look faded in appearance, you will once again be able to see the world through high-definition eyes. 

4. Improved Distance Vision 

The removal of your cataracts and the insertion of brand-new lenses to one or both of your eyes can significantly reduce problems and irritations caused by presbyopia and fix issues such as nearsightedness. 

Again, if you usually wear glasses either for driving and for long-distance, or else need to wear glasses when reading the newspaper or watching the television at home, one or both of these necessities may be negated after your cataracts are removed. 

Other fabulous benefits of cataract-removal include an improved quality of daily life and the correction of astigmatism and blurry vision.
