Cataracts Surgery/crystalens

Today my 2nd follow up appointment after 2 weeks post the left eye cataracts op using crystalens, as I told you on the 1st day after the op my distance vision was 20/50 and blurry. Now after 2 weeks my distance vision improved and intermediate vision is good. Today my surgeon told me the vision will be 20/20 or better within next few weeks and my eye healing is progressing very good.
The clinic will give me in next 3 weeks training on improving my near vision and ability to read without using glasses, so I am good now in distance and intermediate visions and will be good after 6 weeks near vision and able to read without using glasses, which is great.

Hi Alazzawi,
This is very good news. I'm sure glad your vision is improving everyday.
I'm curious about what kind of training you are getting on improving your near vision. Tell me about it!
Thanks,
eyemar

I do not know exactly how the training will be, I got a book and my clinic will contact me after 4 weeks from the op to start vision training for reading. Will let you know as soon as I get 1st session. I think this training courses for people who accommodated crystalens.
