Prescription Question

Hello.I had cataract surgery on left eye only due to trauma 2.5 months ago. My prescription on right eye has remained relatively stable.. same (od) -4.25 +3.75x107
                      (os) after cataract surgery  -2.75+1.00x085  add +2.50 left eye only

My question is this I have progressive lenses and my visions seems a little bit more clear, but it makes them more intolerable to wear. I have tried to wear them by force and they make me clumsy when i work. With these progressive lenses my two eyes seem to NOT work well together.

I have a 2nd pair of cheap glasses distance only, my vision is not as good. but more comftarble..
Any suggestions?... my surgeon has mentioned that i have pco.. so hopefully that clears my vision more on my left eye.. Any input will be appreciated it

The problem is the difference in the amount of astigmatism and spherical power in the two eyes.  You should work with your doctor to get a comprise prescription to make you more comfortable.

If the capsule is hazy, a yag may help.
