I have a 14 year old jr who has cataracts.He can see only a little bit, would it be ok to do cataract surgery at this age. I am so afraid that he is going to get lost. Nancy

Nancy,

age itself doesn’t contraindicate surgery. It’s general health and organ function that is important. Proper evaluation and lab work should give an indication whether he’s a good surgery candidate, and/or whether accommodations can be made to make anesthesia safe for him.
