Thank you for the additional information.
The standard monofocal lens will give you the best clarity of vision above the other newer lenses
. Most doctors will agree with that. The draw back is that it is only clear at one distance, either distance or near and you would need glasses the other times. If you are OK with reading glasses or no-line bifocals at work, then this is the better way to go.
Now, if you want to be rid of glasses for most of the time, then the newer lenses are good but the drawback is with a decrease in contrast sensitivity and possibly some halos. Most people are OK with that so that they do not have to depend on reading glasses.
I don't have experience with the newer lenses. From other colleagues, the results of the crystalens have been somewhat underwhelming. The other lenses such as ReStor or ReZoom may be better. Ultimately, if you decide to go this route, then you should consult with a surgeon who has had experience with these lenses. The surgery is the same, however, just a different lens implanted.
Your other choice is monovision
where one eye is for near and the other eye is for distance. Your brain has to learn to ignore the blur coming from one of the eyes at all times. Some peole love it, and some absolutely hate it.
Another consideration is how much astigmatism you have. These newer lenses do not correct for astigmatism. If you have a significant amount, then you may need to correct the astigmastism with LASIK
after the surgery to get the full effect of the implanted lens.Please remember to press the accept button so I can receive credit for assisting you today.
