Over time, cataracts can progress to a point where operation is necessary for better sight. In order to perform necessary or desired activities, cataract surgery is necessary if you are no longer able to see clearly. In cases of impaired driving, reading, or recreation activities with cataracts, surgery is reasonable. The treatment of cataracts is not possible with medication.
