Will cataract surgery affect my LASIK-corrected vision?

The cataract surgery will correct the blurry vision caused by the cataract and can leave a different correction than you are used to after LASIK surgery. Figuring the power of the lens implant after someone has had LASIK can be part art and part science—meaning some touch-up to the visual result may be necessary after the cataract surgery if you are not happy with the final vision. Please discuss these options for treatment with your doctor.
