I had cataract surgery when I was a kid when they did not have intraocular lenses. I hate my glasses and don’t want to wear them anymore. Can an intraocular lens be implanted this many years later in life?

Yes, but seek an ophthalmologist with significant experience in placing secondary implants and be sure that you understand the benefits and risks of surgery.
