  • Mini-monovision target?

    Back on this site again after a detached retina repair (vitrectomy) derailed my plans for cataract surgery a couple of months back. Surgery was on the non-cataract eye, although that eye will now get cataract sooner due to the surgery. An unfortunate side effect, but I still have my vision so I' …

  • Piggyback lenses vs Lasik/Lasek/Smile

    As I approach another vitrectomy after having one on each eye combined with IOL, I need to consider correcting my monofocal IOL outcome at the same time.    The initial target was a mildly myopic prescription to give some intermediate & arms length vision as I had with my natural …

  • Good night vision with cataracts - anyone else?

    I am 64 years old. In September 2016 the optician told me I had the beginnings of cataracts in both eyes, but at a very early stage. I was checked again in Sep. 2017 and there's little change. The strange thing is, that I can see perfectly with my presciption glasses outside at night, but …

    I am aged 64 and have been mildly shortsighted all my life. , In September 2016 I first noticed that I couldn't see very clearly in the far distance, unless I pushed my glasses further out on my nose. "Time to get a new prescription", I thought to myself. "Your eyes have improved& …

  • choice of lenses after cataract surgery

    My ophthalmologist has suggested that I get monovision lenses after cataract surgery (one eye with distance and the other one with mild nearsighted).  However, I am unsure about this.  If I choose distance for both eyes, what activities will I be able to do without glasses and what …

  • Thankful firsts

    It is so easy to dwell on the negatives of cataracts and things one misses - particularly if you experience them younger than you ever thought you would.   Although I am almost a year out from surgeries I still think about eyesight every day - perhaps it’s not something I will ever take for …

  • Monofocal set for distance... what should be my expectations?

    For people who have had cataract surgery with a standard monofocal IOL lens how drastic has your near vision acuity been reduced? I am fully aware that reading glasses is pretty much the guarantee when opting for monofocals that are set for distance... I think I’m okay with that if I go that route …

  • Any experience/info about the AcuFocus IC-8 IOL?

    Seems like this IOL (which functions like the Kamra inlay) is getting great results in Europe and elsewhere and will hopefully be coming to the US in the next year or two.  Sounds like it could be as good of an option as the EDoFs but without all the nighttime issues of glare and halos like my …

  • Bad floaters after Dropless cataract surgery.....

    A week ago I had a cataract surgery in my left eye with a monofocal lens. The surgeon used the Dropless method which, as I understand, is an injection in the eye at the end of the surgery with an antibiotic and steroid. Since the surgery my vision is corrected to 20/20 in that eye but there are a …
