Had an appointment today with the optometrist who diagnosed my cataracts. Saw her 3 months post op to get my prescription. At the time both eyes were plano for distance and i had slight astigmatism in both eyes (RE .25 & LE .50). Although I haven't used readers much I was given a prescription of 1.75.
I had EDOF IOLs (Symfony implanted summer of 2017).
Today from my visit glad to receive the news there is no sign of pco but my prescription changed. For the better in RE see 15/20 in RE and now no astigmatism. LE needs a bit of help at .25 for distance and astigmatism increased to .75
Reading prescription decreased to 1.25 although only time I used them this year was for extended reading or very tiny print.
I was surprised to find out my vision could still keep changing in next few years. Wondering if this is the nature of cataract surgery and IOLs or because I was diagnosed at 53 with cataracts vs the normal age for cataracts. Forgot to inquire with my optometrist.
Anyways wondering if difference between eyes will cause some headaches and RE will be working overtime. It may be helpful if I got glasses to use when driving to reduce the strain.
Anyone else still on the forums a year or more out from surgery experiencing fluctuations in vision?
