    Yes, cataracts could be treated through the surgery. It is really a cure for cataracts which a lot of people use this way. However the cataracts will come back again after the surgery if you don’t treat the eyes well after the surgery. If you use the eyes a lot in front of the computers with little rest, your eyes may get cataracts again. Your eyes may infection or other eyes problems which indirectly cause the cataracts.

    Yes, taking a surgery is a main and usually necessary treatment for people who get cataracts. Nowadays the surgical technique for cataracts has developed into a very mature extent, and the rates of successful surgery can be more than ninety-nine percent. The recurrence of cataracts after surgery usually refers to the muddiness on the membrance of the lens capsule behind the crystalline lenses in the eyes, which is known as "cataracta", whose occurrence rate is as high as about 30 percent, while it can still be solved by taking a laser therapy to break the membrance. The effects of cataracts surgery usually depend on the personal health conditions as well as the prevention and healthcare after the surgery. People after the surgery should be more careful in their daily diet and rest, take good rest and sleep well, eat more vegetables, fruits, milk, eggs, and so on.

    Well, yes, it is possible for cataracts to come back after the surgery. Generally speaking, a cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye, which can eventually block the central line of sight and impairs vision. And when some clouding occurs on it, some treatments should be taken to cure it, such as the cataract surgery. So we can say that cataract surgery is an operation to remove the clouded lens. Of course, by having surgery, it will just be effective, if the recovery is smooth. But on the other hand, after the surgery, if your eyes are irritated by some allergens, or some other factors, it will just make the recovery process stop. And in some cases, cataracts can come back. So just pay more attention to your eyes after cataract surgery.
