We all have someone in our family – parents, grandparents, uncles or aunts who have to undergo cataract surgery at some point or the other. When you or a loved one are handed a diagnosis of cataract and are advised to undergo cataract surgery, the very thought can give rise to a lot of questions, anxieties and fears. One major cause of apprehension is – What will happen during the cataract operation? What can one expect after the cataract surgery? Just knowing what will happen and what we are expected to do, can ease a lot of our anxieties.
