Can my mother undergo laser surgery?

Q: My 62 years old mother has used eye drops for five years and underwent glaucoma surgery 12 years back. After that she was diagnosed with cataract and underwent another surgery for cataract of one eye, five years back. Three years later, she underwent a surgery for cataract of the other eye. Now, her eyesight is extremely weak. Can she undergo laser surgery?

A:Her vision and also field of vision is likely to be restricted due to glaucoma which should have been regularly monitored even after cataract and glaucoma surgery.

However, there is a possibility of a membrane formation after cataract surgery which too can affect her vision. If this is the case, then YAG laser will improve her vision in a matter of minutes.
