If the vision is lost because of cataract, it means the cataract is mature enough to be operated. Consult an Ophthalmologist and let them decide whether there is an ungency to operate or not.

It can wait if it is only cataract. If it is anything else such as glaucoma or retinal disease it cannot wait.
Next Steps
You can seek second opinion with available reports
