In brief: Surgery or specs
Vision loss from cataracts can often be corrected by glasses if the cataracts cause refractive changes only.
If there is cloudiness from the cataracts surgery is a good option.

In brief: Cataract surgery
When vision or glare test (light shined in eye as read chart) is worse than 20/40, cataract surgery is recommended.
Always: protect eyes from sun/ uv exposure, don't smoke, eat green leafy veggies.

In brief: Surgery
When it's visually significant, and vision can be improved, then cataract surgery is recommended.
Otherwise avoid uv exposure, don't smoke, etc.
