Will my near vision be better or worse without glasses after cataract surgery?
DEC 20, 2016
I'm farsighted and wear tri-focal glasses. I'm having a cataract removed and replaced with a lens where I won't need glasses for distance. Will my near vision be better or worse without glasses?
I need to see your eyeglasses prescription before any surgery to be able to answer accurately. In most cases, farsighted people will be less farsighted after cataract surgery with a lens implant and most of the time that will make the required glasses for reading and for computer less strong. That would consequently mean that your unaided reading and computer distance vision would be somewhat improved, but not perfect by any means. I suggest you discuss this with your ophthalmologist.
