I recently had a cataract removed and a crystal len implanted. If the error is greater than 2 diopter, you might consider an IOL exchange. v=BC6Jtw04cy0 The cycloplegic drops can frequently correct 1 to 1.75 diopters of a myopic shift.
I was told I would be able to see clearly near and distance. I had the Crysta Lens HD implanted in my right eye recently and it worked great up until 2 weeks ago. This should be done fairly early since the Crystalens haptic get scarred in very early. The next would be to yag the posterior capsule and this would decrease myopia by about .5 to .75 diopter.
I had Symfony lenses implanted in both eyes the first week of December.
By 1 week postop my uncorrected vision at distance was between 20/15 and 20/20.
Not everyone achieves this level of near vision with the lens so people shouldn't expect to necessarily get quite as good a result, and should be prepared for the possibility for needing reading glasses at near.
I suspect the fact that I'm comparatively young for cataract surgery, 52, might have something to do with the results.
What time line, is getting to be to late for an exchange of the IOL?
One treatment is to use cycloplegic drops to move the IOL to improve you near vision.
This should be done fairly early since the Crystalens haptic get scarred in very early. The next would be to yag the posterior capsule and this would decrease myopia by about .5 to .75 diopter. I meet with the doctor tomorrow and will discuss these possibilities.
The natural lens in your eye performs an important part of the focusing for your eye.
If the natural lens is removed and a cataract lens implant is not placed, then coke bottle thick glasses would be required to try to make up for the loss of your natural lens.
