New member here. I've been advised by an eye surgeon in London, UK that I'm best off (for now) getting a mono-focal lens in my left (bad) eye. He said that because my reading vision was quite good in my other (right) eye that by getting the mono-focal in the left the blended result would be quite good. I guess this is known as "monovision".
I was surprised by that recommendation as my right eye is quite bad anyway..not from cataracts but from nearsightedness. I'm surprised he feels I could achieve a good outcome from having only the left eye done. Have member here heard of good outcomes via a monovision strategy?
Lastly, he said he wouldn't be using femtolaser method to cut the incision but rather a blade. Is there much support to use the femtolaser in the case of monofocal lens? or is that overkill?
Regards and thank you in advance.
