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