Dear Doctor,

Hi, my name is dfhdfg.

After cataract surgery, I wouldn’t mind wearing glasses sometimes. I wouldn’t mind wearing glasses for driving or watching TV, but I don’t want to depend on glasses for close reading. It is most important that I can read a book without glasses. Use a computer without glasses is a close second. I drive at night often. So long as I could MINIMIZE my dependence on glasses, I wouldn’t mind some nighttime visual imperfections such as halos, starbursts, and/or glare around lights. 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. You should know that I've had previous eye surgery to decrease my need for glasses. I've tried monovision before, and I DIDN'T like it.


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.
