Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, Thank you for the question.I am Dr.A.S.Desai and I look forward to assisting you .
Are you available for chat now?
If I am to understand correct, your question is whether removal of cataract will bring the intraocular pressure (IOP) down in the left eye , isn't it ?
Then the answer would depend on the cause of the raised IOP. Glaucoma can occur due to different causes and one of them is lens induced glaucoma (LIG). Only if a diagnosis of LIG has been established in your spouse's left eye, then a cataract removal surgery will help but not otherwise.
Suppose the glaucoma or raised IOP is due to some other reason ( other than LIG) then mere cataract surgery would not bring the IOP down.
Does that answer your question?
