I was told by my glaucoma specialist (ophthalmologist) that I had cataracts a few years back. I was there today for my six-month visit and he said they seem a bit worse, but there is no point doing surgery until I notice my vision changing from them. He said I’ll probably need it in 2-3 years.
My brother debated about having the surgery, chose to, and regrets it. He doesn’t wear glasses now as his distance vision is fine, but he hates having to fuss with his reading glasses whenever he needs to read something.
I suppose you could get progressive lens glasses that are just clear on top?
