Welcome to HCM.
Please don't worry that he has to undergo a surgery in his eye. With his age and symptoms of blurred vision
, as long as he has significant cataract
with a good cornea
, I think you must confidently go ahead with the surgery as adviced.
Many eye hospitals are there in and around Mumbai, but I would suggest you to find the best nearest one in your locality,to make it convenient for travel during the time of surgery and further post operative visits with your eye doctor.
Nothing wrong in taking a second opinion
, and nowadays most of the cataract surgeries are without sutures and with Phaco technique,less time consuming and faster recovery.
Good luck with your hunt and hope your father gets a wonderful post op vision. Take care.
