Eye and Vision Care
if iris is turn due to truma, a catract devilop on lens from strain and not able to focus. If the iris is repaired or replace, is it possible the lens can repair itself of the catract
You have asked me about two different eye conditions: a torn iris and a cataract, both probably caused by the same trauma.
Those two conditions require separate surgeries. So fixing the torn iris will not fix the cataract. In addition, the cataract cannot repair itself.
