Cataract is the first reason that leads to blindness in the world. And this will make the patients’ life quality significantly declined. Cataract patients generally need the surgery to treat this disease, which is a heavy burden to the poor patients. In order to deal with this problem, Tang Shang government carries out a light engineering to help the poor patients for free. This research investigated the patients treated by this project half year later aimed to understand their life quality. And then provide the reference opinions to improve the operation effect and life quality of the patients treated for cataract . The investigation random selected 212 patients treated from workers hospital half year later, and divided them into different groups by gender and age. The results showed that male patients’ life quality is better than that of female patients’; physical function is related with gender and age.
