Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
It is good to hear from you and that the removal of your old lens went so well. :)
No. There is no financial incentive for the surgeon not to put a new lens in your eye. The only reason not to put a lens back in your eye is if:
1. Your vision was good enough without an intraocular
lens and using just a very mild Rx in glasses.
2. You would not be exposed to the risk of complications from the surgery to put in a lens....wearing glasses is risk free :)
Don't jump to conclusions yet, or get worked up about something that might not even happen. Let you eye heal, be happy that the first stage has come off without a hitch, and see how you are doing a few weeks down the road.
Does this make sense?
