: An old lady who is about 70 + yrs old is asking whether she can do a lens implant now since her last cataract operation 15 yrs ago. The reason is that she has to use very thick glasses to read. Grateful if anyone can be of help.
This is possible if she is in good health and has a healthy eye. The procedure is called a secondary implant and is not unusual. This may allow her to have minimal or no distance correction. Find an ophthalmologist who has done many of these in your area.
