I'm a 66 year old male with blurred vision in my left eye, due to cataract. I also have an immature cataract in my right (dominant ) eye. I absolutely do not want to address the RE until the cataract becomes problematic. I have worn glasses for over 55 years and really have no problem with glasses dependence after surgery. However, the idea of reduced glasses dependence is certainly attractive. I have been examined by two surgeons, and both have recommended toric lenses. One stated that I have much more astigmatism than can be corrected with LRI. My current refraction is: OD sphere -2.50, cyl +1.75, axis 010. OS sphere -1.00, cyl +2.00, axis 180. I am reluctant to incur the added expense ( $2500 in my area), plus the risk of a second surgery to rotate the lens, not knowing how many years until I need surgery on the RE. I'm searching for options. How much reduction in astigmatism can realistically be expected with LRI? How much residual astigmatism is considered non-problematic for most people? Is LRI or LASIK an option at a later date, after both eyes have been implanted? I would greatly appreciate your input on this.
