Re: New eyes? Don't forget to get an eye test

I discussed multifocal lenses with my surgeon. They have drawbacks, especially with flares and suchlike at night. What really matters is what you want out of the operation. I didn't want to have to put with visual artifacts, I did want to be able to drive without glasses. In the end, we decided on 0.0 in the right eye and -1.0 in the left. In this way i can work at a computer without glasses, and I can read. It's more comfortable with my reading glasses, but I don't very often actually need them.

The lens in the left eye cost me about 250CHF extra for measures that reduce artifacts; the one in the right is toric, as I had bad astigmatism.

I'm enormously happy with the results. If you want to know what cataracts is like - look through a dirty window, then compare the view with the window open. Brighter colours, sharper definition. Wonderful!
