I will have cataract surgery for the first time early this summer and am going nuts trying to decide which type of lens replacement to request. I have been reading about the multifocal lens which is good for both near and far vision but has a 5%, at least, rate of night vision problems (halos, glare) and also possibly not quite as clear as the monofocal lens. On the monofocal, you have to choose between near and far vision! Who knew it was this complicated?
Those who have had cataract surgery:
Could I get some feedback on the type of lens you chose and how happy you are with it? I am interested in feedback on all three types, both monofocals and the multifocal. (I also read on one site that if you are "particular" you should not get the multifocal!) I want both near and far vision with both being clear!
Thanks. If it helps, one eye is worse than the other but I think since last spring, the other eye is now affected whereas it was not last year, according to ophthalmologist. I won't know until early June if I will need one or both eyes done.
