Q If I get LASIK done at this age, how will it impact the success of using an IOL when I have cataract in old-age?

Ans.  We have treated many cases of cataract who have done LASIK in their past.

This does not affect the steps of the procedure. The only thing is to inform your eye surgeon of the history of LASIK done as today cataract treatment is not just about treating the cataracts alone but also about treating the powers of the eyes to be least dependent or completely free from glasses after cataract surgery, hence there is an adjustment needed in the calculation of the IOL power.
