Was checked by eye cataract surgeon today and he confirmed, recommends I have lenses replaced in both eyes. There are however choices: basic for distance vision, one for distance and midrange, and multifocal plus astigmatism (TORIC). Only the basic is covered by Medicare, however the other choices between $1,500 and $2,000+ per eye seem to have some trade-offs in performance. I have astigmatism in both eyes all below one diopter and can say before the cataract clouding became serious I could see well enough to drive without glasses, and to my mind the correction of the astigmatism by glasses was not a noticeable improvement over looking without correction. My first though was go with basic lenses but am still considering going for the astigmatism corrective (Toric) lenses. Looking for experience or other help, even hear-say, on the trade-off of theToric lense and simple lenses for long distance.
