I had pretty much decided to get the Symfony multifocal. My husband likes his. I have had monovision contacts for almost 20 years and had no trouble adjusting. But it just seems to me if both eyes are working together it’s got to be better. Then the doctor told me in my case it’s a toss-up or maybe 51% in favor of monovision.
What is making me re-think this is that my dad had macular degeneration.
The tech sent me this email-
A family history of ARMD is something we like to take into account. Having family history increases your risk of developing macular degenration (though doesn't guarantee it). In folks that have macular degenration we typically advise against getting the multifocal as the quality will likely be limited. In people who have no sign of macular degenration at the moment (such as yourself), we are certainly ok with people pursuing the multifocal. However, if you wanted to pursue the most conservative approach, pursuing monovision would over the multifocal would likely be a better option if you were to develop macular degenration later in life.
Do I am really having trouble deciding.
