The article offers information on cataract surgery which has been one of the most common surgical procedures in Canada and worldwide. It notes that a permanent artificial lens is inserted into the original capsule through small incision. It adds that glasses made up acrylic polymers are to be used by patients following the surgery. Moreover, multifocal intraocular lenses will also serve as a way to eliminate the use of glasses while experiencing intolerance of haloes and glares.
