I have been trying to find what people think is the best route to go with my second cataract surgery. My first was done almost 3 years ago. I chose to have it done because I also had a macular pucker and I wanted it cleared up so that only the pucker was the problem. I had surgery on that in January and my vision is quite a bit better but will not be any where near normal.Everything is still blurry but best at vision for about 10 feet away. I asked the Dr about getting the right eye for close up work. He really didn't want to do that and is suggesting intermediate. Before presbyopia set in I was normally bi-focal with one eye near and the other far sighted. I want to be able to do computer work, reading and handiwork without glasses. I don't mind wearing them for distance. I was given the choice of Crystelens (?)+ $1900, Symfonic + $3800 or standard + $0. We are retired and I could manage any but it would be somewhat a pinch with the Symfonic. I'm worried that if I go with the intermediate, I'll need glasses all the time. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
