Hi Dr. Hagan,
I read with interest your Journal of Dec. 2009 re: premium lenses in which you talked about dysphotopsia, foreign body sensation, and blurred vision as some of the complaints in premium lenses, in my case it is a Restor lens.
1. Is dysphotopsia, unwanted visual aberrations, halos at night, etc?
2. What causes the foreign body sensation? Is this due to dry eye? I have
been told that the Restor lens is not so forgiving of dry eye. Could this
sensation abate if the lens was explanted, and a monofocal lens
3. Can the Restor lens, even after Yag, still have a slight ghost-like image
in distance vision, and also near vision? It took 18 mos. for me to get to
20/25, but it is not a clear image. I wonder if Yag will take of this, or make
worse, or remain the same. The PCO I have is very mild. I don't have
Saran Wrap vision.
Thanks for expert help.
This depends on how dominant the eye is. I have had a fair number of patient that by history an eye was dominant but became non dominant due to a cataract. You can set for mini monovision and if after 3 or 4 months it does not work you can a piggyback IOL, IOL exchange, or LASIK or PRK. You should discuss this with your surgeon.
