Functional Improvement after One- and Two-Eye Cataract Surgery in the Salisbury Eye Evaluation

Purpose: To determine the impact that cataract and cataract surgery have on clinical measurements of vision, reading speed, objective mobility performance, and subjective visual functioning. Design: Prospective, population-based study. Participants: A total of 1739 Salisbury Eye Evaluation (SEE) participants without previous cataract surgery with bilateral baseline best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) of logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution (logMAR) ≤0.3 (≥20/40) or cataract surgery between rounds 1 and 2. Methods: Participants were categorized on the basis of cataract surgery by round 2 into no surgery, unilateral surgery, or bilateral surgery. (Read more...)
