in January 2017 i had a single cataract removed from my right eye. When it healed, I had a perception disorder that caused my perception on the right side to indicate that on a level surface the right side was approx 6" lower in 4'. When I look at a door frame, the right side is higher and lower than the left side. When I am walking, I quite often stagger as my perception indicates the surface is lower on the right than the left. I have had two prescriptions and glasses made to correct this, but the vision is still exaggerated. My suggestion is that if you are having cataract surgery have both eyes done or you may have to put up with stumbling and the sense that your eye is not functioning. With this experience, I wont let them touch my left eye.

Your "decision" seems to contradict your own "suggestion".

Please explain further.
