After a couple to 3 weeks you should have a very good idea if you are going to need reading glasses. If reading glasses is all the problem you have with ReZoom you are LUCKY.
It sounds like you are not a big fan of ReZoom. It is just ReZoom or any multifocal lens? I was too nearsighted for ReStor lenses. Isn't the whole point of multifocal lenses is so that you don't have to wear reading glasses?
Use the search feature and archives to read about the ReZoom. Then you decide.
a friend of mine who was also very nearsighted before surgery has ReZoom and she needs reading glasses for close vision. Fortunately she did not have any of the other problems which have been widely discussed here (halos, ghosting, double vision, glare) so she considers herself very lucky and is happy wearing the reading glasses. Her distance vision is excellent.
From some of the discussions here I am starting to believe that there are so many differences between patients' eyes, not just refractively but in terms of so many other possible conditions, that it is hard to predict the outcome with multifocal IOLs. This is why (in response to your other question about surgeons) it is really important to work with someone who implants these lenses on a regular basis and has seen the results in many different kinds of patients. Then they also have to be honest about the possible complications and visual results.
Another obvious one that's good to point out is that health websites like this one attract unhappy people with problems or complications that are hard go fix.
Folks that have had ReZoom or ReStoR IOLs and are happy are just not attracted to a website of people looking for answers and support.
The responses here are biased in favor of complications.
Yes, the responses of the patients posting on this website may be biased. That's why I place so much importance on the opinions of the surgeons who implant the IOLs. And it's been reported that few surgeons would want ReStors implanted in their own eyes, and virtually none would agree to getting ReZooms. That says a lot.
Cindy, I've been reading about ReZooms on this forum for about 3 years, and I've never heard of anyone with bilateral ReZooms who could do prolonged reading without glasses. (That's one of the reasons why the ReZoom/ReStor combination was popular awhile ago.) By contrast, aspheric monofocal lenses set for "blended vision" provide crisper distance and intermediate vision than ReZooms (and about the same near vision). In addition, aspheric monofocal lenses enhance night vision, require no adaptation time, involve far fewer post-surgery problems, and carry no premium IOL fee. (Check out the patient education video at www tecnisiol com.) I can't think of any advantages of ReZooms.
