I didn't realize that this was you but, of course, your questions are never a bother :)
It seems to me, from what you posted, that a mistake was made and you were given the incorrect lens for your aphakic (post cataract surgery eye) It really should be thicker then the other one.
If you can see well enough in the distance with no contact, then just go without and buy some dime store +2.50 reading glasses
for near tasks.
If you need a contact in your regular (non operated on) eye to see in the distance, then go through the three lenses you have until you find the one that works. Then you can use reading glasses over the contacts for near tasks.
On the next available time, take all three lenses back to the optometrist
and let her figure out where the screw up is :(
I think your mind is just fine -- no need to worry there.
