Cataract surgery with bifocal lenses
Has anyone had this? My dr. is suggesting that I go for bifocal lenses so I won't need reading glasses. He says there is a newer kind of lens out now (they tried this before and it didn't work well) that is working well, but has only been out a year or so. Has anyone had any experience with this?
It will be more expensive because insurance won't cover the bifocal lens...regular yes, but not the extra cost of bifocal... but I'd be willing if it would work, who wouldn't?
He said there might be a bit more glare problem with the bifocal lenses. He also said because I am VERY nearsighted (a very long eye) that might also make it not work quite so well, and I might need a small degree of help with glasses. I have a week or 2 to decide what kind of lens to get.
MODS--I don't think this topic has been listed yet....but I admit I didn't search all the past pages. Please consolidate if it has been. Thanks!
