Revisit Cataract Lens Choices Please?
Today my eyes were measured for cataract surgery that is scheduled for April 11 (left eye) and April 18 (right eye).
I'm having trouble deciding whether to get 'standard' lenses or 'multifocal' lenses. Cost is not an issue. I realize that whichever lenses I get I will see more *clearly* because the cataract will be removed. I also need *corrective* lenses because I have been nearsighted since age 13.
This MD would correct my mild astigmatism separately, so I've been told I don't need 'toric' lenses. These are the only two types of lens I am looking at: Standard or Multifocal.
If you needed your vision *corrected* -- not just made less cloudy by cataract removal -- could you please tell me:
1) Which type lens do you have?
2) What is your resulting range of vision without glasses? Distance/Computer Screen/Reading Stanard Typeface? When do you use glasses?
3) How long did it take you to adjust?
4) Do you have a problem with 'halo's' around lights? When?Only at night (car headlights)? Indoors too?
Thank you SO MUCH! I'm going nuts over this!
