Please read our important medical disclaimer.
After cataract surgery (removal of a cloudy lens from the eye), with one eye lensed for far vision, the other lensed for near vision, do images look larger in the eye set for far vision than in the eye set for near vision?
Yes this is literally true, although many patients notice the smaller image first, and most people do not notice any differences when both eyes are open.
