Hello, I had a Restor 2.5D implanted in my right eye 4 weeks ago. The cataract in my left eye is not yet affecting my vision and I have a multifocal contact in that eye. Overall the results are decent, but I do have one issue and I wanted to see if it was common for others with multifocal IOL's and also Symfony (as I am considering mixing Symfony with Restor once I reach the point where my other eye needs surgery).
In my operated eye, both my far and near focus points work, so I know that the lens is OK. What I've noticed is that when I'm working on my computer, reading, or using my phone/tablet for an extended period of time, it takes a long time to regain my distance vision and the longer I've been performing the near task the longer it takes (and the worse the distance vision gets). For example, when I sit down at my desk around 8:30 AM, I can read 20/20 comfortably on my vision chart. By lunch, I'm more like 20/40 and by 5PM or 6PM, I'm probably 20/100. It takes 2-3 hours (at least) to get back to 20/40 and i will not get 20/20 until the next morning. My left eye (which has a multifocal contact) instantly adjusts to any distance.
I'm wondering if others have experienced anything similar and if it improved over time? I do already try to look out the window every hour or two for a few minutes to use the more distant focus but it doesn't seem to help. Thanks.
