Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
if the current implant is one less than what should have been put in, you dont have perfect distance vision. I would suggest simply getting a monofocal distance lens just like in the one eye that was done. This works well if you dont have to have near vision correction with cataract surgery (most people dont) Then you get bifocals later for reading and perfecting distance vision. You do not have to do monovision or commit to an expensive multifocal implant. By far, most people do monofocal distance implants in both eyes. Dr. Stevens
Thank you for your reply. My problem with the same
Dr. Stevens, Thank you for talking with me about this. Your opinion confirmed the way I was leaning and I am relieved. I appreciate your time. Yea !!!! I feel good about my decision to have monovision for close up. I did not think about being able to wear a contact for distance! The multifocal restore lens made me uneasy. Thank you again!
I am glad you are comfortable with your decision. Sometimes it takes someone with no financial interest to point you in the right direction, this is what I would recommend for a family member given the situation. Hope the surgery goes smoothly, you should be starting your preop zymar or vigamox anytime now....Regards *****
