Did your mother have an infection after her surgery? I am sorry to hear of her results, but please know cases of blindness as a result of cataract suregery are so infinitesimal, it's akin to refusing to cross the street because an uncle was ran over by a milk truck.
I looked at both links, and they are not alike.
The first is meant to add a steroid that helps prevent the onset, that the body is not making due to some form of genetic abnormality. That means three issues with it. One being without the drops, the cataracts will begin to reform, as the steroid to prevent them is no longer being artificially supplied. Second, The cause of your particular cataracts have to be born of lack of this steroid in your body. Third, if you read their data, they've had some success with lower cataract density (not curing it) in gene selected animals. While it's a promising study, it'll be fast tracking if they make it to market within 10 years.
The second link. Bear in mind you are reading testimonials, not research data. And for everyone you read that says it helped, there is one from someone else saying it didn't. The main common factor I found in my (admittedly quick) reading of the remedies listed was positive results seem to come from people who began using them at very early onset. Bear in mind that testimonials can be used much like P Hacking with scientific study, where someone plays with data to force a result they want. With testimonials, you don't know the variables with the people who claim it works, and the ones with the people who say it doesn't. Nor do you know how many of the testimonials are faked in order to boost sales. Just please be careful what you put in your eye, as everyone's body reacts differently to medications, both synthetic and natural.
If you're cataract(s) are advanced, and you have medicare (all though typically,most give a free initial consult), I would ask you at least meet an opthomologist. You don't have to select surgery by seeing one, and can at least be sure you're as informed as you can be medically, and discuss your different treatment options you're looking at. I'm sure you'll find he'll be happy to help you track progress, or lack thereof, as you try different things. Besides, the bigger and more experienced you can have your support team, the better off you are. And putting things in your eyes is not safe, even a "natural drop" someone is selling. Those retailers don't know your medical information, your allergies, family history, or are monitoring your condition while under treatment.
