The surgeon has just written to suggest the use of a contact lens in the right eye, to use the existing monofocal iol set for distance in the left (non-dominant eye).
The right eye is -15 sphere. -0.75 cyl x172 6/6+ The left eye (with the iol is +0.5 sphere = 0.75 cyl x10 6/6+
There is a small cataract starting in my right eye, but vision seems reasonably good with glasses.
I tried a distance contact lens in my right eye briefly in the optician's consulting room, but the vision wasn't very clear - the optician thought that might be due to the small cataract. Therefore the result was not conclusive.
The range of focus seems greater in my right eye - either because the spectacle lens has a larger range of focus, or because I have a very small amount of accommodation left. (I am 63 years old). My concern is having to wear different glasses, or progressive glasses with a small area to see clearly at near, armslength and full distance focus.
My work involves reading, smartphone and laptop (near), playing the organ (armslength), reading students' music while teaching (about 3-4 ft away).
I have posted previosly, but am starting a new discussion about the combination of iol and contact lens.
