I was much younger than 65 when I had my first (and so far only) cataract surgery in one eye. The cataract developed rapidly as a result of another eye operation I had about 6 months previously. I knew this would probably happen.

Like you, it was really only bad in one eye. I didn't hesitate to have the surgery, since being able to read is extremely important to me. It was covered by my insurance somewhat. I don't remember the exact numbers but it seems like I paid about $1000 out of pocket.

Do it now if you like to read! The recovery time is really quick...
