I am asking this question on behalf of my girlfriend. She had two surgeries about 6 months ago for retinal detachment on the left eye. One of these was a vitrectomy and this procedure results in formation of cataracts. She now needs cataract surgery. She was also told that, during the cataract surgery, they can also improve her myopia for that left eye. However, she has a choice to make. Her right eye (the one that did NOT need retinal surgery) is -10. She was told she has the choice to have the left eye improved to either 0 or to, for example, -5. A correction to 0 would mean she would need to wear a contact lens on the right eye, while a correction to -5 would mean she would stick with eyeglasses. Her eye surgeon explained that this choice was up to her preferences - the surgeon seems to think that both options are equal from a strict medical perspective. Do any of you have experience with having to make this choice? Any feedback welcome.
