told not to drive at night...but no surgery yet?

The last time I went to my eye dr. I told him I saw streamers from the headlights at night and it was hard to see and he told me I had the beginnings of cataracts and just not to drive at night (I'm now 56 yo was 55 then) I am due for another check up but should I see another dr. he is a Optometrist. What I'm wondering should I see an Ophthalmologist next time? (don't want to waste my insurance either) any ideas on this? Cathy

Best to ask to be examined by an ophthalmologist.
Cataracts can change fast from what I'm reading, so it won't be a waste of insurance if you check it out with the right doc ASAP.

thanks that's the way I was kind of leaning but with not much experience in this area I wanted to make sure, thanks again. Cathy
