post-op problems with Tecnis Multifocal
I had tecnis multifocal lens implanted about 1 month ago.  I am having halos, glare, lack of contrast in colors, diminished depth perception, things look hazy, but my near vision is OK.  Surgeon thinks it is due to astigamatism and wants to do PRK to correct it, but he thinks it may not make me happy.  He thinks I should consider removing that lens and replacing it with a monofocal lens.

Should I expect the vision problems to decrease over time.  I was hoping to have perfect vision, but is that not realistic?  I was wondering if others have experienced these problems and had them go away, over time, or if this is, unfortunately, normal for lens implants.  Should I get the implants removed.

Please help

How are you doing now with your Tecnis lenses?  I had both of my eyes done in October last year and I wish I could give you better news.  My biggest problems are the halos in the day as well as night and I have no intermediate focus indoors from about 2 to 6 feet.  Hope you are doing better.  I've read that most people do.
