I have a small cataract in one eye, with very good near vision, good intermediate and regular to bad far vision. Due to retinal problems I have got in that eye, if I undergo cataracts surgery, I run the risk of a macular hole. One doctor said it would be better to do the cataracts surgery now, meanwhile it's a small one, because it's less traumatizing for the eye and in consequence, the risk is not so big as if the eye has a hard and big cataracts. Nevertheless the risk is high. Another doctor said I should wait in order to avoid that risk now, and when the cataracts becomes big and the moment comes, to do both the cataracts surgery and a Vitrectomy.
The Vitrectomy is the surgery that doctors do to treat a macular hole, and it's the surgery I would like to avoid. It's almost impossible to know whether I would need a cataracts surgery in 8 months or in 8 years. In my other eye, the one I have already had cataracts surgery, my cataracts developed in about 4 years.
Looking forward to your answers
