Dear Doc, I have Stage 3 Cataract on Right & 2 on Left Eye but can see well with corrected bi-focal glasses.What happens if operation is delayed?

In brief: May advance

Delaying the removal of a confirmed cataract simply means you go a longer time with impaired vision.
Later stage cataracts are also a bit more tricky to remove surgically. However the basic rule is to consider removal when your visual activities become difficult.
