Welcome to Just Answer:
Sorry about the difficulty of your mom's eyes. The first step is to determine the estimated visual recovery after removal of the cataract. Posterior subcapsular cataract (PSC) can be a little difficult if it has scarred onto the posterior lens
capsule, increasing the risk of vitreous
(thick clear gel inside the eye) moving forward. This tend to be the case if the cataract is very mature and/or old. However, many eye surgeons do have good success without significant complication even with advance PSC. My suggestion is that you get a second opinion from a different eye doctor about the possibility of phaco surgery or small incision cataract (SICS). If the cause of most of her decrease vision is due to the PSC, then I confident that she will do very well after cataract removal. The risk of retinal complications during or after cataract surgery is related to the skill of the eye surgeon and eye conditions
the patient may have. I suggest that you contact Aravind Eye Hospital for a second opinion evaluation. The eye surgeons at this hospital are excellent and highly skilled. In the meantime, she should continue to use the vitamins and eye drops. The only eye drop many have considered very beneficial for reducing cataract is Vision Clarity Carnosine Eye Drops (Cataracts
, Dry Eye
). See link below. However, there is no documented study with randomized trial for this drop, except for testimonial claims of improved vision after use.
