Mono vision ....not so much.....

by Fred Brillante
(Charlotte, NC)

I'm 66 and was surprised to hear the eye doc say to my complaint about glare from bright headlights at night, "You need cataract surgery".
I opted for mono vision which is one eye for distance and one for close up. I've done that naturally for years anyway and had read that even after paying $6,000 for multi focal there is still a chance of needing glasses.
The distance eye was done first and I was so pleased with how much better I saw that I was looking forward to the near eye lens replacement. But oddly 2 months after that eye surgery I have trouble reading the paper when I get up for at least an hour or so then I can read. The eye surgeon offers no explanation nor could I find anything online about this.

Monovision surgery

I am thinking of having one lens set for close and one lens set for distance. I’ve already had the cataract operation on one eye for distance. I want to have the other one set for near so that I have the option to read without glasses. I do plan on wearing glasses regularly but the thought of not being able to read anything without glasses scares me. How did your Monovision operation turn out. And how is your 3D vision with Monovision?
