Hi, I've spoken to 2 different doctors regarding my cateracts. I'm a younger cataract patient in my 40s. My left is has a big cataract that really interferes with my vision. My right eye has a very early-stage cataract which doesn't affect me yet.
I don't know what these numbers mean really, but my left eye is -3, and my right is -1.
I have worn glasses since I was young. Now, due to age, I must take my glasses off to read a book or look at my phone; which doesn't really bother me.
The first doctor says I should get one eye adjusted for far and the other near(I think he said -.75 and 0).
The 2nd doctor says I should just get the bad eye done now, and keep it at -3. This would mean I would still need glasses, but I could take them off when reading. So I guess nothing would change except I wouldn't have the bad cataract anymore.
But now, I'm wondering if I should do the bad eye now and get a lens for distance, but still do the right eye later. Would that be too much of a difference for my brain to handle?
My only thing is, I DO NOT want to need reading glasses. That is my only concern.
