In the clinic, the indication for cataract surgery is often based on a visual impairment noted by the patient, the presence of cataract that accounts for the visual symptoms, and the likelihood of improved vision with surgery. The indication for cataract surgery is thus often based on subjective observations by the patient and the ophthalmologist. Visual acuity, especially when obtained through a pinhole, and straylight assessment may be more objective observations in the assessment for cataract surgery. This presentation will focus on the integration of these various subjective and objective parameters in the indication for cataract surgery.
