I had cataract surgery at age 37 in 1983. At that time they did not implant artificial intraocular lenses (IOLs). The reason given was uncertainty about how they would hold up over my estimated life expectancy at that time. I’m 74 now and have been wearing thick glasses all this time which are heaver and cause more glare due to strong magnification (9x+). If my life expectancy is at least 10 more years, I would like to know if there is now a chance that I could get IOL implants to significantly improve my vision and reduce glare? It would be my choice at my own risk, but I would like to do it.
