In brief: Cataract surgery

You should not need contact lenses after cataract surgery.
The surgery and new implants should replace the need for contacts after the surgery. If needed, you can be refitted with the same make and model of contacts with the new power if needed.

The most common reason for needing contact lenses after cataract surgery would be irregular astigmatism. This could be due to keratoconus, or any type of corneal scarring.

In brief: Contact lenses

Contact lenses can be worn just like before cataract surgery without a problem. The surgery does not affect this at all.
Give your eye doctor a call and get a contact lens fit.

In brief: Modern cataract su

The use of contact lenses depends on how the cataract surgery was performed and what the results were, complicated or uncomplicated? Modern cataract surgery corrects vision by the use of a lens implant and if the power is calculated correctly, and the surgery is performed without complication there is no need for a contact lens.
Your question therefore requires more clarification.
