Cataract surgery and vision improvement play a key role in older people rehabilitation in enhancing their quality of life and promoting independence. This article describes the difficulties of an older female patient with severely reduced vision in both eyes, which impacted in every aspect of her life. Improved vision and support from healthcare practitioners and family members make a positive patient experience. The use of a diary to monitor daily activities has been found to be therapeutic and motivating for the patients as well as providing good learning points for health care practitioners when reviewing patients’ progress.
