I would be grateful if you can advise me on this imp matter.
My dad has been detected with cataract which is at initial stage. its in the right eye & will start developing in left eye in future.
His doctor advised him for lazer surgery which will cost appx 30K each eye. his right eye will be operated 1st.
he has suggested to use this lens - Acrysoft acrylic lens which is a US company & protects against UV rays.
Your advise will immensely help.

i am sorry,this is not the laser i interpreted
This is a proper approach for your father s surgeryStrictly speaking this is not laser surgery but ultrasonic waves are used.
Cost of surgery varies from place to place and acrysof is a good lens.That means you are in good hands and go ahead with surgery.
Please do get back to me in case of any further query in this regard.
