  • Focus on Halos and Glare

    Seems like many of us have had issues with halos and glare of some sort from single or multi focal, acrylic and silicon.  So I am wondering if lens sizing contributes to the issues. For example say my full dilated pupil size is 8mm, yet surgeon installs a 6mm lens.  Thus in low light, variable...

  • Monofocal IOL for NEAR: How far can you see?

    Monofocal IOL for NEAR:  How far can you see?  Also what power glasses would you need for distance? Would you need a pair for intermediate distance too? If you go with distance monofocals, my doctor advised everything upto 6 feet would be blurry without glasses.  And would probably need...

  • My experience of the Symfony Toric lens
