    I am really sorry to hear that, but I think it is possible to remove cataracts from a macular degeneration patient. Because cataract is a common disease, and many patients have been cured. Maybe your condition is a little special, but there's no survey says that cataract surgery has an adverse effect on macular degeneration. So don't worry about it.

    Cataract and macular degeneration are developed with aging. Actually, I am not sure whether a cataract surgery will have an adverse effect on macular degeneration or not. However, I am sure whether you will have cataract surgery or not, your macular degeneration will become worse and worse. So considering your vision, I think you'd better cure your cataract first.
