Depends: A critical discrimminator is whether the macula (the sharp focus center) was detached. Results are generally visually quite good if the macula was attached prior to surgery. Was the detachment spontaneous or traumatic. Trauma lowers the chance for good vision. Is there underlying disease? like diabetes, or a previous cataract surgery? All these options should be discussed with your surgeon.
