In brief: Depends
There are many approaches to provide better vision.
Cataract surgery despite all the advantages and even with femto laser assisted cataract surgery still has a higher risk profile than lasik . However if you have visually significant cataracts then lasik a poor choice.

In brief: Many factors
Depends on specific needs and testing such as prescription.
May be a better candidate for one versus the other. Lasik is on the outside of the eye; intraocular lens of course is inside the eye with different set of potential risk. The clarity with intraocular lenses may be better overall but many factors contribute to each procedure's success.

In brief: Great question
Both technologies are excellent for the right person.
The key is determining which procedure would best suit you. For example, if you are under the age of 40 and have a mild to moderate prescription, you may benefit more from lasik; if you have a high prescription, are over 45 and need readers or bifocals, lenses may suit you more. You should visit a center that offers both to get the best answer.
