Just a quick note to say hi! Hi Stutk. I have a cataract in my dominant eye and am considering monovision. I am nearsighted and would like to have an implant that continues my nearsightedness, but the conventional wisdom seems to say that the dominant eye should be corrected for distance. In your post, you asked if it was ok to correct for near distance in your dominant eye, and then go for distance in your non-dominate eye. Did you get any feedback about this approach?
Best of luck on you implant. What kind is it?
I just found a website that had list of cataract surgeons and how many surgeries they have done.
It is an old list. - at medicalconsumers.org. Wish I'd seen it sooner.!
Hi, I saw my dr. who has prescribed contact lenses for me in the past; she says the implant looks fine ("He didn't butcher you"),. Again at her office I could only see the E and the next 2 letters and they were fuzzy. I am assuming that the surgery was good but his measurements were off. Also, she agrees that the lens is cloudy. My surgeon suggests 2 further operations: yag plus laser to flatten the cornea. She says she would just do the yag for the cloudy lens because each surgery weakens the eye. I hope to arrange for 2d opinion from a surgeon who "has done over 100 crystalens implants." Are you personally familiar with crystalens problems?
Just a quick note to say hi! Not sure how this friends thing works.
