You will most probably need reading glasses after cataract surgery.
Most likely yes
Hello! Medicare and the vast majority of insurances pay free distance only implant. Unless you’ve paid for a custom multifocal implant you will need reading glasses and a separate pair of computer glasses. I’m a big advocate of multifocals for my patients after cataract surgery. There may be a distance Rx left over and we’re doing a lot more computer work these days. You may also notice increased brightness from the sun and glare at night.
