Any ideas if I can have cataract surgery if I have watery eye?

In brief: Yes

The cause of the watery eye should be managed before the cataract surgery, though.

In brief: Cataract Surgery DES

Watery eye can be due to reflex tearing from dryness; blocked nasolacrimal ducts (duct to nose), chronic allergy.
You can still have Cataract Surgery if you have any of these, but it is best to have these corrected/under control to help assure best quality of vision after surgery.
