A prospective cohort study examined the impact of bilateral cataract surgery on falls, injuries, vision-related quality of life (VRQOL), and depression. Over 400 participants were recruited from the Eye Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City and assessed one week before, one to three months and one year after cataract surgery. The study found that falls reduced by 78% after first-eye and 83% after second-eye cataract surgery. VRQOL and depressive symptoms also improved for the cohort.
