How can cataract in the left eye be treated?

I have cataracts. The worst in the left eye. Surgery will have to wait until sugar levels are normal. I am 65 years old. Depression & anxiety don t help (take Zoloff and see psychologist, frequently). Frustrated. Difficult to read, unless I put a lamp directly over the paper/book. Decided to retire in 7 months even though I like my job. More anxiety. Comfort foods. Vicious circle.

I recently got new glasses. The doctor at Lens Crafters said that I had the beginnings of a Cataract in my right eye and I should contact a surgeon for corrective surgery. I d like to find a doctor with lots of experience who is not to far from where I live (Northville, MI 48167). Can you recommend an expert in this field who can guarantee success. My concern is that I have good vision in the affected eye (my right eye) and virtually no vision in my left eye ( I cannot see the large E on the eye chart). If something goes wrong with the operation on the right eye which diminishes my sight in that eye, I would be unable to rely on the left eye for sight.
