Hi I've been for my 1st assessment for cataracts operation, and they found something that could be glocoma, I have been told that I can still go ahead with this surgery and that glocoma is a different issue and to speak with my GP about it would you confirm to me that I will be alright to go ahead with cataract surgery.
Many thanks
