Cataract surgery, before and after?

Stigmatism corrected?  Can a holographic site be effectively used after a cataract surgery.  I’ve just been told my left eye (my master eye) is just a matter of time before I’m going to have to have the procedure.  So who has experienced this, and what do I have to look forward to?

I’ve got severe astigmatism as well as cataracts (mild) & really near sighted and talking to my eye Doc he was saying once  the cataracts developed to the point of qualifying for surgery they will insert a lens under the cornea to correct the nearsightedness and it can change the astigmatism depending on the person 

 

However, this is a VA eye Doc so take it for what it’s worth. When I get to the point of needing eye surgery I’m going outside the VA to true eye surgeons and specialists 

 

Wish our resident eye doc was still here as he would know

Sidebar I’ve got several red and green “red dots” on handguns and while most everyone says green is better for people’s with astigmatism I’ve found red is my color of choice right now. It’s not as distorted and oblong. This is really noticeable when I’m dry firing taking my time and focusing on the target longer and more intently 

 

when I’m just going for speed the dot blurring is normal and I just squeeze the trigger as the dot gets on target, it’s not as accurate (B8) but on a silhouette it’s almost always in the A zone ot in the face
