I had cataract surgery almost 6 years ago. As I had had success with monovision with contact lenses I went with that for my IOLs during cataract surgery. My left eye is for reading, my right is for distance. 3 months ago I had surgery on my right eye...macular hole repair, vitrectomy, IRM peeling. During recovery I wore a multi focal contact lens in my left eye so that I could see near and far until the gas bubble was gone in my right eye. I stopped wearing the contact lens the day the bubble went away on 9/23. I had a surgical follow up exam a month later on 10/25 and, lol and behold, the distance vision in my "reading" eye has improved. The technician actually commented on this. I can tell that I am seeing a lot better distance wise with my "reading eye" when I close my distance eye. It seems to be a significant improvement. How and why would this happen now?? I still read well with the reading eye. I am baffled. Can vision actually improve with age? I have been taking a beta carotene and zinc supplement for a couple of years now, mainly to help my night vision.
