Abstrakt

Injuries and other consequences of falls are serious for the individual patient and costly for society. Reduced acuity of vision is common among elderly people, and falls are frequent. The relationship between instability and falls as well as the association between reduced vision and falls has been recognized, but it has not as yet been examined whether cataract surgery improves balance in elderly people and thereby promotes fall prevention.
