I have astigmatism and cataracs which I would like to get corrected with monovsion or mini
monovision surgery, along with LRI . Would this give me good distance and intermediate
(computer) vision? Would I just need glasses for reading fine print then?
Very specific to the individual. I recommend a short trial of monovision with contacts to make sure your brain can adjust to monovision/minimono. Also, if you have more than one diopter of astigmatism, you will likely do better with toric IOL than LRI. If less than half a diopter, you may not need LRI at all so amount of astigmatism is important too.
