As I approach another vitrectomy after having one on each eye combined with IOL, I need to consider correcting my monofocal IOL outcome at the same time.
The initial target was a mildly myopic prescription to give some intermediate & arms length vision as I had with my natural lenses. However I now find that vitrectomy and IOL surgery combined makes calculations tricky as eye shape (axial length especially which is key to power) can change for at least a year post surgery.
The upshot is my initially under myopic result is moving ever more overly myopic and I am finding contact lenses (multifocal or standard) difficult to wear and get reasonable vision with. I also have very bad starbursts, dysphotopsias and a strange circle around light sources in low light like a Symfony IOL circle but larger, so its not been great all told.
My surgeon has suggested piggy back lenses to put the vision back nearer where I wanted as these will avoid worsening comfort issues with contact lenses.
Has anyone had piggyback lenses and if so how did it go?
