I am hoping to have this done in a couple of months. I have been wearing mono vision contacts forever but I have been so nearsighted for so long that I am ready to just have both for distance and wear reading glasses.

If you have had a good experience with monovision contacts you would do great with the monovision implants . I tried just distance contacts thinking that reading glasses would not bother me . They drove me nuts because I needed them all the time . Could not read menus or read anything without them .I always had to have them with me . The monovision implants that I have give me great distance but also enough close vision that I only need reading glasses if I am reading for a very long time .

This is the result I'm hoping for. I'll know in about a month .

That's just what my ophthalmologist told me, too.
Best of luck with it!

Cataract surgery is a miracle, especially if you were extremely nearsighted before. I have the near/far lenses now and can function without glasses. I only use readers when I read a book with smaller type, otherwise my eyes get tired. After wearing thick glasses for most of my life, I'm in heaven.
