Makes sense. What parts of the eye?
Per optometrist's exam
per optometrist's exam - right cylinder 1.50 -
axis is 060 - left eye it is cylinder 0.50 - axis is 085
Information I am seeking is for general purposes only. Only need to learn what options may be available to me, so I can make an intelligent decision when discussing with the opthomologist, otherwise I will sit there like a dummy not knowing what choices I may have.
Wow. I don't have that info. I did not know there were that many measurements. I thought that I could get power for distance like with glasses/contact lenses. I was under the impression that these implants. It was suggested that I could receive one implant for near and the other for far. So now I am really confused.
Is that advisable?
If the measurements prove to be OK - which should I go for? I don't want to make the wrong decision.
To sit arms length from my monitor and see TV from 15 feet away
One last question - what would be an approximate cost of lens inplant. I have no insurance.
Sorry, I do have Medicare. So I guess I am OK. Still, I am curious.. what is approximate cost.
Thank you. I now have some idea. What could I expect from a premium lens? I may consider it.
Truly, that is the last question --
A premium lens should provide you with some level of independence from glasses for near, intermediate, and distance vision, but it likely would not allow you to see everything without glasses. Many people have halos and glare around lights for several weeks to a few months and others never get rid of them and need the lenses out. So while some people love them, they are not universally well-liked and so for the cost, some people don't think they're worth it. Does that make sense?
Thank you Dr Dan - Good bye. I am leaving you now.. Info was very helpful.
