Doctor DanB :

If you want to have one lens removed and exchanged for a different lens, this is certainly possible. It would require another surgery to allow for exchange of the lens, but it can be done. As far as timing goes, the sooner that this is done, the better off you will be. The reason for this is that the more time goes by, the more the lens will "stick" to and become part of the shell that it is in--it is easier to take out and replace the closer it is done to the original surgery. Does that make sense?

Doctor DanB :

Yes it does make sense - I am seeing the Opthomologist this afternoon and this gives me a little more info I'm thinking price should be around 1500.00
