... Thanks for responding, seriousperson. Actually, I do have a couple questions if you don't mind. Which of your eyes is dominant? Mine is the left eye, with the crystalens, and since I'm not having good distance in that eye, I will have to learn to use my camera with the right eye. So you think with the 20/100 that over time, the left eye will learn to see distance in concert... (14 replies)

... Yes, yes, yes! It does describe the very annoying ping pong game going on in my eyes. What I can't seem to understand is why this happens and better yet, how do I make it stop? As I said, when I raise this issue with the doctors, they all seem to think that I'm imagining the problem and so far, can't get anyone of them to take me seriously.

I went through this whole procedure to get rid of my glasses not to end up with three pairs. Your glasses regime sounds very complicated. What was the situation like for you pre-op?
