I have an appt to get a cataract out of my left eye this month...
I recommend having it done at an eye surgery center where all they do is eye operations all day long. That's where I got my eyes done.
And you might want to make sure you think about what sort of lens you want in your eyes. Fixed/distance in both eyes is probably the best option, and probably what you will get by default if you don't choose. But you might want to think about it and make your own choice.
Your choices are:
d) Lenses that attach to your eye muscles and flex to change focus.
e) Lenses that have a whole bunch of fixed focal lengths all at once. Your brain needs to take a couple months to rewire itself to adapt to the new input.
Some people get fixed/distance in one eye and fixed/near in the other. I think that's a screwy idea. But it's another option.
