Dear Doctor,

Hi, my name is Bob.

After cataract surgery, I wouldn’t mind wearing glasses sometimes. I wouldn’t mind wearing glasses for close reading only. It is most important that I can see far into the distance without glasses. Use a computer without glasses is a close second. I drive at night often. High quality of vision at night is very important to me. If it’ll improve my quality of vision, I’d like to utilize the best technology available, even if my insurance doesn’t cover the entire treatment. I've never had previous eye surgery to decrease my dependence on glasses. I've never tried monovision before.

Dear Patient,

Monofocal Lens

Based on your responses, strongly consider a Basic Monofocal lens in conjunction with your cataract surgery. This type of lens is covered by health insurances. Vision usually improves after cataract surgery, but this option does not minimize the need for glasses. Please discuss this option with your doctor to see if it’s the best choice for you, as there are many factors to consider when planning your surgery, and EVERY patient benefits from a custom-tailored treatment. Your surgeon may recommend a laser-assisted procedure in certain situations.
