Hi, I have cataract in my dominate eye and would probably need surgery in a few months. My other eye has myopia about -6D but no cataract so far. I could not decided if Monofocal or Multifocal is best for me.
One big question for me is that I would like to keep playing racket sports after the surgery. The ball will be coming from the opposite court (far distance) to within a few feet very quickly and I need to sight the ball clearly to time my swing. Any double or fuzzy vision is a definitely no-no. I don't play professionally but I still wanted to play good (not playing with grand kids just yet, I am 47).
My questions are
1) Will monovision with monofocal IOL provide enough depth of view in the intermediate range for me to judge distance and time my shots?
2) Will multifocal IOLs distort the ball too much? I need more than seeing a "clear" image of the ball, I will need to see if it is spinning, wobbling and gauge its incoming speed in split seconds.
Thank you very much.
