Recently my mother is diagnosed with a cataract

Recently my mother is diagnosed with a cataract, we have taken 3 opinions regarding whether to proceed with surgery or not, 2 doctors said you need surgery but one doctor said you don't need to undergo surgery, i am very confused whether to proceed for operation or not, will appreciate your response.

Thank you

Sorry, you never got an answer.  How old is your mom?  What did you decide to do?  I think surgery can be scary but this one is fairly straight forward.  There is an awesome eye care community here with a doctor that answers questions.  Find it under the top bar under communities.  Let us know how your mom is doing!
