Yes she will be able to operate even after surgery. As pointed out, it is safer to get operated in a hospital where a vitreo retina surgeon is available. She may need YAG laser Posterior capsulotomy later on.

Hello 1. there is nothing to worry about cataract 2. Consult very good ophthalmologist and get operated. 3. Post polar can be easily operated with very good results but it is recommended to get operated from a place where retina facilities are available. 4. Otherwise posterior polar cataract is not a thing which should trouble you 5. yes you can operate after surgery. 6. she can call me for more queries Regards
