I had cataract surgery on my right eye last week. Prior to surgery, I did not meet with the ophthalmologist to discuss livestyle/expectations, which I found a little odd. My only communication was with the technician who measured my eye with lasar and then extended his arm and told me this was the distance that I would see clearly at and I would need glasses. Since I wear contact lenses and have needed readers for over twenty years, I thought that I would be getting a distance lens and he was indicating the start of good vision. This is not the case. I can only see very clearly at about 4 feet. I find this distance very disorienting and feel nauseous when walking and reading. At this point I need glasses/contact for both distance and close up work. My other eye does not in need of surgery yet. I am really upset because this intermediate vision does not work for me. Does anyone have any advice? I am very annoyed with myself for not insisting on seeing ophthalmologist prior to surgery.
