"It has been one week after my cataract surgery with the restor lens, my up close vision is pretty good, however my distance is same as before surgery(other words no better) my understanding was the monofocal and the restore would correct..."
"I had cataract surgery done a week ago today. I chose for the multifocal lens. However a week after surgery my long distance vision is not improving. Is this normal? Will it continue to improve, compared to other people my sight is taki..."
It's always good to know what's going on and if there's a solution to correct it. I'm glad that you found out. Having the Lasix procedure performed will correct for distance, but will that change your ability to read and see clearly up close in that eye?
I've read that lasix will correct for oneor the other, but not both. Is this correct?
I've noticed that my second eye does have slightly better up close vision and the first eye still has better distance vision. I don't know if this was done on purpose by my doctor but with the blending of both eyes the result is my being able to see both distance and close up very nicely. From your description it sounds like this may be what the your doctor is planning. Best of luck to you as you seek the best possible vision.
Just a quick note to say hi!
Initially with my second eye I had trouble reading one inch numbers on a clock 30 feet from my desk at work.. Today, however, the numbers are very clear and easily read. So I did notice a gradual improvement with the second eye. With my first eye distance vision came in much quicker. I guess each eye is different and patients are different as well. I would think that you should be seeing improvement with your eye by one week post op. I do have the "halos" daytime and at night on car headlights, but it's not really a bother to me. Last Monday I tested 20/20 for both far and close vision. You can read a lot of horror stories about the ReSTOR lens, but I have been very happy with my results. BTW my surgeon didn't test for vision until sever weeks out. Ron
I noticed that my vision was relatively clear by 2 days from surgery. In the first eye distance cleared first and then intermediate and close up vision. My second eye was different in that the distance vision was not as sharp at first and intermediate and close vision corrected sooner. I would think that at one week in there should be some improvement. You say blurry for distance. Did you receive the ReSTOR lens? Cataract? How's the close up vision? I can still see gradual improvement after 2.5 weeks post surgery.
