I had good far vision and bad near vision before cataract surgery. After the surgery my near vision is fine but my far vision is not as good as it used to be. Is that normal?
With modern cataract surgery, your surgeon can often set the vision at any distance. It is popular to leave older patients with good near vision in some cases and have them wear glasses for distance tasks. Ask your surgeon what the plan is or was.
