Can a cataract patient get Lasik surgery done?

Q: I am 52 years old and had my eyes checked and the doctor says that I have started to develop cataract. I also have diabetes. Will these two conditions prevent me from being eligible for Lasik surgery?

A:Yes, with the presence of cataract, you should not undergo Lasik procedure; instead cataract surgery with Intraocular Lens implantation should be done. This can also take care of your refractive error.
