In spite of the high success rate of cataract surgery, it is not without risk, so we must ensure that the benefits outweigh the risks of complications for each patient. Cataract evaluation requires an individualized approach beyond measuring visual acuity and performing a slit-lamp examination. To do this, we need to bring the real world into the exam room and consider each patient’s visual needs and experiences as they relate to the objective exam findings.
