I have never worn glasses and cataracts were causing deteriorating far vision, especially night far vision. My eye surgeon and I agreed to a mono-vision lens replacement for my cataracts with my right eye to have far vision and my left eye near vision The right eye was done 4 weeks ago and resulted in blurred distance vision with slight astigmatism and fairly good near vision - I can read without glasses. The surgeon decided to then insert a lens so the left eye would have good distance vision. This surgery was done 2 weeks ago. The result was the left eye has a significant astigmatism, so neither eye is capable of distance vision without correction with glasses.
I am very disappointed with these results and wonder how 2 attempts to get a good far vision lens implant could have failed. I have not met with the surgeon since the second surgery yet for an explanation. I believe the surgeon has a very good reputation. One of the options being offered is laser surgery. Should this be an added cost? More importantly, should I be looking for another surgeon, or what I have experienced not uncommon? Thanks
