  2. Individual Preferences: Consider personal preferences and lifestyle factors when deciding on the timing of cataract surgery. We collaborate with patients to align the surgery schedule with their unique needs and commitments.
  3. Severity of Cataracts: The progression and severity of cataracts play a crucial role in determining the optimal time for surgery. We assesse the extent of cataract development to recommend the most suitable intervention.

Additional Factors to Consider:
