In brief: Yes

With cataract surgery, your eyes are measured and a lens implant can be placed that leaves you near sighted, or far sighted.
Today's premium lens implants can do both.

Te surgeon can discuss with you what the corrective power lens implant should be for your best benefit.

In brief: Yes

At the time of cataract surgery, you will receive a lens implant.
The power of this lens implant is determined by precise measurements taken before the surgery. You and your surgeon can discuss the targeted prescription you want to have after the surgery. In most cases, the final result will be close to the intended result. This can include the correction of nearsightedness.
