Helen Says:


I have heard that cataract surgery can cause alziemers or dimentia.
My father had both eyes done and the surgeon also talked him into laser on both eyes to get rid of his glasses.
Dr philip larken also said I have to pay for it (laser machine) somehow. My father did not ask for laser.
The laser beam could go into the brain?
My father passed away from dimentia about 5 years after the cataract surgery.
Now I am facing cataract surgery and it wont be same doctor. I don't know what to do.
