Does astigmatism generally worsen after a cataract surgery? Has anyone experienced this?

Posted , 1 user is following.

If you have, was your astigmatism noticeably worse after the surgery? Did you have a follow-up, corrective laser surgery and did you restore your eyesight afterwards?

Ive had cataract surgery and I'm told I have crooked corneas, therefore, I guess I'm looking for reassurance and encouragement. I still have problems with my vision. I wonder to what extent my vision can be repaired.
