I am a woman in my mid 70¨s. I have had excelent vision throughout my life. In fact, for years I used 1.5 reading lasses and for the last five years I no longer need any reading aid; I can read very well with my left eye...but cataracts have caught up with me. I have been diagnosed with cataracts in my left eye and incipient catacracts in my right eye. I live in Mexico and my Doctor tells me that I should have an IOL monocal implant in my left eye; set to be able to read without any glasses since I am already doing that and my brain has adjusted quite well for that. In a few tyears, when the right eye cataract evolves the doctor says that I shall have an IOL monofocal implant set to be able to see far away, as I currentlyam doing. That is, if I understand correctly, the Doctor´s recommendation is to emulate what my brain is already doing today: read with my left eye and focus far away with my right eye.
What should I do? Should I have Multi-focal IOL instead of Mono-focals?
