"Providing prospective patients with an understandable account of the diagnosis and treatment of cataracts, this book thoroughly explores the issues surrounding this condition. Surgical treatment and postoperative processes are described in detail, including the risks and possible complications. The emotional side of sight loss and its effect on the patient's life is discussed. Answering questions frequently asked by individuals with cataracts, this comprehensive reference covers the causes of cataracts; prevention and treatment; intraocular lenses; deciding when cataracts should be removed; and whether cataract surgery eliminates the need for glasses."
