The plan is right eye on 12/11 and left eye a week later. Alcon monodical lenses will be used. The targeted diopters after surgery is -1.00D(right eye) and -1.75D(left), or mini-monovision for near/intermediate. Before surgery, I'm 6.0/6.5 myopic and very slight astigmatism. Questions:
1. The surgeon said if I can stay motionless well, she may just apply topical anesthesia. How difficult is it to stay motionless during surgery? Do you sit down or lay down during surgery? Is recovery easier if applying only topical anesthesia?
2. The surgeon said I could change my mind to monovision for distance/intermediate after first eye is done(right eye). This is because I'm quite myopic and the resulting diopter may vary quite a bit from the targeted -1.00D(even though ORA will be used). My dominant eye is right eye. In monovision, does it matter which eye is which for vision length?
