Suffering from Multifocal IOL for 5 months (Tecnis zmb00)

now I am 36 years old(with nearsighted plus astigmatism) , living in northern of Thailand. I have been  the lecturer in the University for 7 years, recently I had changed my glasses for reading quite often and It could not help my vision, I had faced severe headache after changing it, so i decided to do the lasik  unluckily my corneal was so thin , the doctor could not do it.

After that, I was recommended to see another doctor who could help my vision through Reflective Lenses Exchange(RLE), he said that " you will have a new world", I believed his word and decided to do it, now 5 months passing by, i was so depressed, i could not use computer properly, my intermediate vision seems to be loss somewhere, my near vision is not quite clear because of astigmatism, I did the academic documents with difficulties.

My distant vision is ok, I have found that my passion in life has been decreasing day by day, I was about to give up my job as the University Lecturer which i love so much. Next week, I will have IOL exchange from Tecnis Multifocal IOL to Monofocal Toric IOL with modified monovision in my eyes.

I would like to share my story to whom who suffers from Multifocal IOL like me, make a decision very carefully before letting the doctor do something with your eyes especially implanting Multifocal IOL.

I do hope that my life will be come back very soon, please pray for me.
