In brief: Senile cataract

This really depends on how the cataract affects your vision.
If vision is a problem then you will need cataract surgery.

In brief: Treatment

Not all cataracts require surgery.
If best vision is worse than 20/40 or glare is significantly affecting VA, most surgeons prefer to do surgery soon but depends on pt's sx, pt's risk factors, pt's preferences; also, though no guarantees with any surgery, many patients are less dependent on glasses & even glasses free after surgery which helps many decide for surgery soon. eyedoc2020.blogspot.com

In brief: Cataract

Observation until such time that the cataract becomes dense or opaque enough to cause a decline in vision to warrant cataract surgery.
