How does LASIK surgery affect cataract surgery?

If someone has already had successful cataract surgery and requires LASIK to improve myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) or astigmatism, the LASIK procedure would reshape the front of the cornea and should not adversely affect the prior cataract removal and lens implant surgery if LASIK is done after the eye has completely healed from cataract surgery. However, for someone who has previously had LASIK and is now considering cataract surgery, it is not so simple. LASIK reshapes the cornea and corneal measurements are used to calculate the intraocular lens used to replace the cataract. Unfortunately, the calculations currently used do not work as well after LASIK (or other refractive surgery). So, anyone who has previously had corneal refractive surgery prior to cataract surgery may need it again after cataract surgery. For further questions, you should ask your surgeon.
