I am also chiming in here - I will be having an Acrysoft Toric IOL implanted on May 6th. I have high hopes! I am very nearsighted and the thought of only needing drugstore reading glasses is just life altering.
My surgeries turned out great - hope yours did too. I am about 20/25 in left eye and 20/30 in right with much better distance vision than I have had for years. My eyes are still changing, but I think I'll end up with 2 strength readers for computer and 2.5 for reading books and fine print. How about you? Sometimes I can wing it without glasses, but I definitely need readers for computer, reading, and seeing anything closer than about 2.5 feet. It is taking some retraining to get used to being profoundly farsighted, when for the past 35 years, I've been profoundly nearsighted.
I've only had three minor complications: I've had an increase in eye pressure in both eyes. There's no pain with this so I didn't even know this was happening. My doc added yet another drop to my daily regimen. Since I've had detached retina surgeries, I have to take anti-inflammatories for 2 full months after surgery and now I have to take an eye pressure drop too. I also have eye strain and my eyes "ache" after a day of just moderate computer work - I sure hope this diminishes with time. I need to be patient since it hasn't even been a whole month after the last surgery. My eyes before the surgery were already dry and they are even more dry now. I need to use tears drops about 7-9 times a day. Again, I'm hoping some of this will diminish with time. I have another pressure check appt next week and I'm going to ask for a prescription dry eye drop.
Other than these fairly minor things, all is great with me! My night vision is much better than before.
