My grandmother is 85 years old and was initially diagnosed with cataracts in both eyes. She is blind in her right eye and has 0.15 vision in her left eye, and will be blind in her left eye in a year or two.Now I want to take her for cataract surgery in her right eye, but the elders in my family are against it, and my grandmother herself insists that she doesn't want to do it, so I would like to ask if this surgery should not be done?If both eyes go blind in a year or two, won't there be nothing we can do if our physical condition declines to the point where surgery is not allowed?
Cataract surgery is possible for 85 year olds. Before doing the surgery, we should see if the patient has serious heart disease and diabetes, if not, cataract surgery is possible.
Cataracts are visual impairment caused by clouding of the lens. If the vision is seriously affected, surgery is recommended, but surgery is risky, and it is necessary to exclude whether the elderly have underlying diseases, and if the blood pressure is high or the blood sugar is high, it is also not possible, and medication is needed.
Cataracts are caused by clouding of the lens.Currently, the only effective way to treat cataracts is to perform surgery.If your elderly person's health allows it, it is advisable to have active surgery.Surgery may not be a good idea when you are older.And now cataracts are very mature and have a good prognosis.
