I can't thank this community enough which helped me ask right questions in my last week appointment with two follow up doctors for second and third opinion.
RD in left eye with poor vision, 4 / 60. Cataract in right eye has progressed a bit limiting my night driving and activities because of reduced contrast sensitivity and glare & halos from car headlights & streetlights.
Problems I am dealing with currently:
- Due to surgeries (VR, SOR, Cataract, Yag) left eye underwent, it looks a
Super happy with how the whole 30 minutes conversation went. The doctor was very empathetic and listened to every questions I had. He told that eyes become more myopic after RD surgery. That's the reason why left eye appears slightly bigger than the right one. The minor squint in the bad eye is because of difference in vision. Unfortunately, nothing can be done to fix these two problems.
I asked about the risk of RD post cataract surgery. He said that the risk is very slim given the health of retina.
Very over hyped and had a very bad experience. He didn't even make eye contact. The whole conversation was over in a minute. Looks like he got p****d off that I won't get surgery done there. He recommended monofocal with intermediate and distance correction.
All three doctors have recommended to get the cataract surgery done. Looks like there is no escape from it. Multifocal is not an option for me.
- Can monofocal correct two distances -- intermediate and distance?
- How precise surgeon's calculations turn out to be with respect to power of glasses post surgery?
- Why do we need to wear progressive glasses if intermediate and distance are corrected by monofocal? I mean, only reading glasses should be needed post surgery, No?
- What factors should I look into for choosing distance vs near monofocal correctness? I have been myopic and wearing glasses 16 hours a day for the last 18 years.
- What is the recovery time post surgery? After how much time do they prescribe glasses? I am scared as my other eye is not of much use. How would I perform daily chores while I am recovering.
As always, thanks for all your help.
