I am 49 years old and developed cataracts within a span of 1 1/2 years with both eyes ready for surgery according to my ophthalmologist. My eyeglass prescription as of July 2018 when my cataract was detected is as follows: for OD is (Sphere -7.00, cylinder -2.75, axis 167 Add +1.50) for OS is (Sphere -7.75, cylinder -1.25, axis 010 Add +1.50).
Doctor told me about trifocal (Alcon Panoptix Toric (astigmatism)) lens but I have basically rejected this option due to possible halos and starbursts.
There another lens called something like M Plus +3.0 which will correct Far and Near vision with SHADOW instead of halos.
After reading some information on this sight, I'm leaning towards Toric single vision (corrects Astigmatism - B&L enVista Glistening Free.
I mainly due computer work and look at my phone. I do want distance vision of course for driving.
It seems from reading on this site that mini monovision might be what I should get done. Correct me if I'm wrong, does minimonovision mean just giving less power in the distance vision in order to increase the mid-range vision?
I see my dominant eye should be set for distance. If I set the dominant eye with less power for distance. Then should my right eye be set for mid-range or close up (reading) range? Will my prescription be too far apart for both eyes to work together? I'm confused? Any help would be much appreciated.
