I had catarat surgery at the early age of 59. Both eyes within a 3 weeks interval. Good surgery, I only needed some anesthetic drops. After surgery, I do not need glasses for every day for the first time since I was 12. My doctor did not recommended multifocal lenses, but this was almost 10 year ago and maybe they are technically better now. He inserted a slightly different lense in each eye, so that I preferently focus one for far sight and the other one for close sight. It seems strange but it works. I use glasses only for long distance driving, spectacles, turism, not for every day tasks.
After surgery my eye pressure became borderline and I have recently started treatment to prevent glaucoma (prostaglandine drops). It seems I have something called pseudoexfoliation syndrome that causes the pressure rise and, as I have now found out, maybe have also caused my early catarats.
But, in summary, catarat surgery is a walk in the park. And for shot sighted guys like me it gives extra qol. Not exactly the same as prostate treatments as all we know.
