Question:
I have a mild stage of cataracts. Can they be removed now? It is in both eyes and I experience blurred vision often.

Answer:
Cataracts can be removed at any stage, but your insurance will not reimburse for the procedure if it is truly minor and is not changing your vision significantly with glasses correction.
