Cataracts are a leading cause of blindness and can be treated effectively with surgery to remove and replace the clouded lens with an artificial intraocular lens. This is a common and minimally invasive operation that takes place under local anaesthesia and has low complication rates. Selecting the optimum prescribing power and the type of intraocular lens – monocular, multifocal or toric – involves the consideration of multiple factors, both objective and subjective. In this interview, Polly Dulley asks patient Roger van Schaick about the choices he faced when undergoing cataract surgery, and discusses the decision making process with Consultant Ophthalmologic Surgeon Stephen Campbell.
