I apologize I post to comments instead of adding a discussion. I have had Type 1 for 53 years with no complications until 2010. Due to a torn retina in my right eye with vitreous bleeding I had 2 vectromies done within 2 months. I now have cataracts in my right eye. My vision is 20/50, night time blindness and no depth perception. My retina splst wants me to have cataract surgery but I am afraid too since I have no sight in my left eye. I am still hoping it will come back once the silicon is removed which might be sometime this year. I had a torn retina with vitreous bleeding in my left eye in Dec 2013 which resulted in 3 Vectrectomies. I apologize for rambling. Has anyone else had all of these issues and would you have cataract surgery in your one good eye?
