I can understand your desire to find an alternative to cataract surgery for your wife and, to this end, go ahead and purchase the cataract dissolving drops. Hopefully they will not do any harm (who knows what is in them) and then you will see for yourself that they will not do any good.

Even though my answer was not quite what you were hoping for, please understand that my priority was to provide you with the most honest information. With that in consideration, I hope that you found my answer useful. Please click the positive feedback button so that I receive credit for my time.
I wish the very best for you wife.
