    So far, i didn't heard that cataract surgery can cure presbyopia. And many patient need eyeglasses to help near vision after conventional cataract surgery. In common, cataract surgery is to use artificial intra-ocular lens (IOL) instead of lens cortex that becomes cloudy in the eyes. And IOL usually have one focal point. So, after the surgery, patient still need wear glasses to provide vision aids.
