Has anyone had this done to correct their vision? Similar to cataract surgery. Going in for it in 2 weeks for the right eye and the left follows a week later. Austin Eye.
LOL... none of that is true. They do some shaping of the eyeball to reduce astigmatism. And implant a lens. I have no flaring, no ghosting, no problem day/night vision.With lense replacement you'll get ghosting or flaring pretty bad at night, but your vision will be 20/20 unlike lasik which only burns the lenses down. That's what an optometrist told me when I thought about opting for it.
All I know is what an optometrist told me when I asked about it. I'll defer to your judgement doug since you have had the surgery.LOL... none of that is true. They do some shaping of the eyeball to reduce astigmatism. And implant a lens. I have no flaring, no ghosting, no problem day/night vision.
Interesting.I had it done about 6 years ago. I was mowing the lawn and realized I was mowing the same spot multiple times because I could not tell what was already mowed!
Cataracts removed. Multifocal lenses implanted.
I have ghosting and difficulty driving at night. Direct lighting in the house is an issue. For instance, if someone is sitting in front of a window or with a light fixture behind them, it's uncomfortable and difficult to look at them.
That said, I went from wearing glasses my whole life and being legally blind in my left eye to seeing 20/25 in the left and a bit better than 20/20 in the right.
I have to carry artificial tears with me and use them several times a day.
I was so blind I would do it again.
