Question:
I wear contact lenses daily to correct myopia in both eyes and am planning to have cataract surgery. Post surgery, will I be able to resume wearing contact lenses if needed to correct my vision (instead of eyeglasses)?        

Answer:
Yes. But please discuss potential visual outcomes with your surgeon. These will be based upon the power of the implant that is selected.
