For people who have had cataract surgery with a standard monofocal IOL lens how drastic has your near vision acuity been reduced? I am fully aware that reading glasses is pretty much the guarantee when opting for monofocals that are set for distance... I think I’m okay with that if I go that route but I also hear some people require different strengths to see close up and a bit further out like near-intermediate.... I really do not want to have to have multiple pairs to see for example computer and than a different set to see my smartphone. Is there anybody out there that just really just need one pair of reading glasses to see things in detail near.... and are fine without glasses for the rest of their visual spectrum. I know I do not want progressive or bifocal glasses nor do I want my eyes set for monovision. My surgeon did hint of setting slightly near sighted with monofocals. I guess I might have to wear a different prescription for really good distance if that were the case?
Also with monofocal lens how are things like hiking, playing sports, mountain biking, etc..... is it difficult to find footing to see things close that would require me to have to use multifocals contact lens to get by?
Although i know things will be generally a lot clearer after my cataract surgery but just wondering how much does it affect your hand eye coordination with monofocals set for distance.....
Most experiences I read about people’s results with cataract surgery is that distance is good 20/20 and they usually just need reading glasses to see close in detail... is it really that simple??
