The systematic review found that, using the best available data, second-eye cataract surgery was associated with clinically meaningful improvement in stereopsis but did not affect other clinical measures of vision or of health-related quality of life, apart from improvements in a mental health measure in one trial. There are limitations in the evidence, however, including a lack of quality of life assessments in some trials and patients’ baseline vision before surgery being relatively good, limiting room for improvement. Further data are needed from a well-conducted randomised controlled trial that reflects current populations and enables the estimation of health-state utility values.
