Well, I tend to agree with you there. But I got new prescription glasses after my cataract surgery, wear them for driving, so no need to report anything.

I had mono-vision lasik surgery in 2005. Before that my driver's license had an eyeglasses restriction. I carried the receipt for my lasik surgery in my wallet until it was time to renew my license kin person. My closeup eye failed the vision test and I explained to the tester that I'd had mono-vision surgery. I thought I might have to show her my lasik receipt but she didnt ask for any proof and she removed the glasses restriction from my license.

Say he gets stopped by a police officer, who notes he is not wearing glasses even though his license says he is required to do so when he drives. I'd say the officer might require some sort of proof that this person's vision has been corrected and he no longer needs those glasses. The information the guy's IOL cards from his cataract surgery will not provide that information.

I can't speak for other states but I live in Arkansas and the surgeon who performed my cataract surgery, i.e., inserted IOLs, assured me that the cards serve as proof I'm wearing corrective lenses.
Why would other states not accept them?

Well, maybe they will, then. I have to admit I hadn't been in that situation and had not thought about using those cards as proof one has corrective lenses.

Actually you do have corrective lenses....only they are implanted.
I just had my surgery this month.
I now have 20/20 vision but I am not going to say a word. I would just get a letter from the Dr and keep it in the glovebox.
