... rgeon talk me into getting a "cataract" IOL lens. Luckily I only got one and waited to see how it worked out before trying the other eye.

... Hi Spar,
It is not worth the extra money, because after all the research I done, you will still need magifyers for tiny print. and all the pro's i talked to said it is more dangerous to put the toric in. I had the "up-close" version of the regular lens that insurance will totally pay for, and I've been very happy.
good luck and I hope your surgery goes great!

... Are you nearsighted? Maybe you have a vitreous tear. I have had two now. The first one started with what appeared to me to be a black streak across my eye.
