I had cataract surgery about 5 years ago. The surgeon implanted a distance lense in my left eye and a near-sighted lens in my right eye for reading. (It turns out that the actual surgery caused my right eye to be astigmatized so I now need reading glasses.)
Now, when I drive I cannot read signs unless I am almost right up close to them.
In addition, when I am on a training course, I can't read the screen at the front of the room unless I'm in the front row.
I can't see actors properly when I go to the theatre, but this is a minor problem.
When I had the surgery, I was told that I would sill be able to see distance and be able to drive etc. But now it seems that I can't.
I'm not sure if this is something I have only noticed recently, or if my sight has deteriorated over the last few years.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Will I now need glasses for distance, as well as for reading?
I thought that with monovision I would never need glasses at all?
