In 2012 I had cataract surgery on my left eye and a Tecnis ZMB00 multifocal IOL
was implanted. I experienced halos and floaters after implantation. It is now 2016 and I am still experiencing halos from lights. The halos can be in rings or one ring with bursts of lights. Now I do need cataract on my right eye.. I am not willing to take the chance. I would like to know how people do with a multifocal IOL in one eye and a monofocal IOL in the other?
Hi Cheryl. I saw the retina specialist yesterday. From surgery results recovery was excellent. Current glasses prescription from November when I first posted is -2.00 stronger in left eye with smaller image without correction . Surgeon asked if I wanted a referral to cataract surgeon because implant would eliminate glasses reduction. that . I said not yet but I am reconsidering. He didn't think I had dragged fovea diplopia - just image size change from macular hole. I have an appointment with primary care doctor on February 8 and will discuss how to get a diagnosis from HMO. I'll let you know. In the mean time, I need to figure out if I have anything to lose from surgery such as focusing from an implant. I was hoping for expert advice. Thanks
