A delay in surgery for cataracts does not put your sight at risk permanently. Cataracts do not cause permanent loss of vision and a delay of several months would not mean you are at a higher risk of complications or that the result will not be as good as it would have been. 

 

For more advice visit: the RNIB website or call the RNIB helpline 0303 123 9999 who can send you a copy of this information.

 

Drivers can check if they need to tell DVLA about an eyesight problem by searching the A to Z of medical conditions that could affect their driving, on the DVLA website or calling their medical helpline 0300 790 6806
