I’m 73…very healthy….I am going in for my first eye next month. My Dr. has suggested NEAR lenses for both eyes and using glasses for distance. I’m confused about the ranges; near, intermediate and distance. He said that I would be able to use my current glasses for distance. (That’s a positive thing because I have invested $$$ in prescription ski goggles) That leads me to believe that I will be seeing pretty much as I am currently but better close up and clearer because the cataracts are gone. Is that unrealistic to think that? My distance glasses are -2.00 both eyes. I have astigmatism .50 and 1.25 and mild macular pucker. I am not a candidate for Toric. Currently I can function without glasses, not in crisp detail but I can walk around my house, cook etc….needing glasses for TV, driving, movies etc. I do not wear glasses all day, only when needed. I’m worried that post implant I will take my glasses off and see total blur. I have found no posts with results with both eyes implanted with NEAR lenses and glasses for distance. My Dr. is a reputable Dr. at a big hospital in Boston. I would like to banish some of my fears and have trust in what he is doing and what my outcome will be. I would like my vision to not be worse than it is today without glasses. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
