Cataract and laser surgery are 2 complete different issues;
laser does not replace the surgery to get a new lense into your cataract.

I had earlier this year 2 cataract surgeries (between both was 1 month, each one had before an ambulant laser surgery to fix the cracks on the cornea.
Can strongly recommend the eye center of Clinique S. Jean (site Rue du Meridien) - perfect work and services.

I, too, had cataract surgery in April and May with 1 month between the two procedures.
It was done at a clinic in the centre of Leuven - a part of Gasthuisberg - and I am absolutely delighted with the results. It was done with a local anaesthetic but there was absolutely no pain and the preparatory and follow-up checks with a local ophthalmologist were also very well organised.
The total bill for 11 visits to the ophthalmologist and the 2 operations was €560.00 and I think there may yet be something to come back from the mutuelle.

2 seperate things. But you can get both done at once.

From what I can gather, modern laser surgery is fantastic and quite safe. I know several people who've had it done and are very happy at no longer having to wear glasses.
