Did the cataract surgeon know that you were planning to have IOLs in both eyes?
No the IOL power has no bearing to what glasses RX was before surgery. It is based on a formula that does not include pre-operative glasses RX. The important thing you have not posted: 1. what is your distance vision WITH GLASSES. 2. What is your near vision WITHOUT GLASSES. If the rest of your eye is healthy and surgery done without complication your near vision should be good in the operated eye without glasses. POST that information and I can give you a better answer.
I am having the exact same issue as you have described herein. If you find out what is wrong, going on or even notice improvement over time, please let me know. That is, if you don't mind taking the time to email me at ***@****. I would so very much appreciate your help.
