Thank you for the additional information. The treatments of cataracts depends on the severity and your symptoms.
If your vision is still good and your symptoms are mild (glare, decrease vision) then it is OK to defer surgery. In this situation, an update on your glasses prescription may be all that is needed.
OK, but suggested or usual treatments??
If worse, then surgery is the definitive treatment. The procedure is quick, often 15-30 minutes in duration done under local anesthetic.
