Thanks, I'll try to be brief: my friend's mother had cataract surgery both eyes last September. They are in Philippines. I had advised them to go to Manila to university hospital opth clinic and not to select the "premium" lens. She went instead to a local doc out in "the province" and he sold her the more expensive lens. As best I can understand it he implanted Alcon Restor.
The left eye has been troublesome, and I finally got them to go to Santo Tomas University Hosp in Manila Opth Clinic. The ophthalmologist there tells her the surgery was "the old procedure", the incision was too long , and the lens is damaged..."cracked". He recommends that he replace the lens.
Question is: could a monofocal lens be installed in the left eye with the Restor remaining in the right eye, or would that be too much for the eyes to adjust to?
