Patient referred for surgical cataract treatment of the left eye

A 64 y/o male was referred for surgical cataract treatment of the left eye. Ophthalmic history was complex and significant in the right eye for trauma (baseball injuries as youth) resulting in secondary traumatic glaucoma, cataract, and traumatic optic neuropathy. Numerous surgical treatments were performed 17 years prior to presentation The left eye history was significant for high myopia optically corrected with a soft contact lens. By history, the patient used his left eye for essentially all tasks due to the constricted visual field and quality of vision of the right eye. What should be done for his present condition?
