Cataract surgery

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hello, I am male 47 year old , healthy with no history of diabetes or steroid consumption.

I was diagnosed with posterior cataract a few months ago by two different ophthalmologists and was offered to do a lens replacement surgery. My main clinical signs are Long-sightedness. Currently using +1.5 reading but ore than anything i have contrast issues at dim or bright light. I also see halos around illuminated objects mainly in the dark.

No other issues found by the doctor.

My question is with regards to the lens used during the surgery.

One of the consultants suggested a multifocal lens (Trifocal)

The other suggested Mono focal with the focus set to mid-long point in both eyes . She suggested that a few months following the cataract surgery i should have presbyond laser surgery to allow me reading without glasses. She has voted against multifocal as she was worry that there will more more risk of contrast issues and the potential halos around bright lights while driving.

I have asked about accommodating lens and both votes again it.

What is your opinion ?

I obviously would like to see as sharp as possible in all light condition to all distances without the need of glasses, contrast issues of halos.
