I had cataract surgery one week ago on my right eye with Crystalens. I was very farsighted. The doctor said he would reduce the farsightedness somewhat in this eye. I went in for my post-op checkup, and the doctor said my eyesight in that eye is twice as nearsighted as he was aiming for. The lens is diopter 23. I can read without glasses, but anything beyond reading range I have to wear my glasses. This is somewhat frustrating, as of course, the right eye is blurry with glasses. Is this normal or is it an error on the doctor's part in calculating the lens strength? The doctor wants to wait about a month to see if the vision will settle down (ie., get more farsighted) before operating on the left eye and be able to calculate the lens. Thanks for any input.
