I'm 4 days post- op cataract surgery. My right eye was done 10 yrs ago and is ok considering it has orbital fracture. My left eye which is also my dominate eye was just done. Before the op we discussed iol's. Before leaving I heard him tell assistant -2 iol. Later i was concerned what that meant so started researching. Found that this was a close up reading lens. Called office and asked and confirmed this. Told them I didn't want this and wanted same power as right eye which was distance. Even made appt. with doctor and made sure of change. Later at surgery once again confirmed the lens to be for distance. Now 4 days after surgery. Since 2nd day ive had clear vision from 8 to 24 inches. Can even read very fine print. From 2 ft. on its a blurr. Trying to drive is horrible. Lights are difussed and 3 times large then normal. Since its dominate eye it wants to take over. I have to cover left eye to do anything except read. Doctor says blurr is from swelling etc. but why is there no blurr close up? I believe he implanted the reading lens instead of distance. After all my attempts to make sure. Each day vision stays the same. Am i wrong? Is this normal? Did he make mistake? And if so, can he put distance lens in and take this one out? Seems like the sooner the better before this lens heals into place. Thank you for quick advise.
