Re: Multi-focal lens implant for cataracts

tumbleweed, Have you had your surgery yet? I had a monofocal lens for distance implanted in my left eye on 24 january 2013 which was 2 days ago and my right eye is scheduled for 07 February. What I can tell you is that the color white is much whiter and I can no longer read the digits on my wristwatch and cell phone with my left eye. I plan to purchase a pair of reading glasses at Walgreens Drugs later today which will hopefully allow me to read after the second surgery is completed. After my right eye is done, I will ask my doctor to prescribe eyeglasses with progressive lenses as I have been wearing progressive lenses for many years and am fine with that. Do discuss the various options with your doctor. senior41 26 January 2013
