Cataracts at 59 yrs old after corneal erosion problem, what to do?

Unrelated: Cataracts can certainly occur at age 59. Their appearance is unrelated to the corneal erosion that was experienced. If your ophthalmologist thinks your vision will improve with cataract removal then by all means have it done.
