I had both eyes done last December, they put monofocals in both eyes. I was very nearsighted and had astigmatism.
After the surgery I'm happy with my far and night vision, but without readers I can't see anything closer than two feet or so..feel like I'm a blind man when trying to see closer than 6 inches things that were never talked about in the surgical workup
My buddy just had his left eye done two days ago. He did not have astigmatism and had a very low correction on his glasses. He is very very happy with the results, he has both near and far vision after the surgery. We are both Vets so I assume the VA used the same lens manufacturer for both of us eliminating the possibility of the lens being different.
So I'm thinking that the predictor of how successful the cataract surgery will be is how bad your eyes were to start with.
It seems to me that the cataract surgeons don't inform their patients that the outcome is very dependent on your eyes pre surgery and give the impression that everyone will have good results at all distances.
