“Typically who I use the multifocal Re STOR for patients who are most motivated to eliminate their need for reading glasses and who don’t do a lot of night driving.
The other thing I like about it is they’re not pupil dependent and slight decentrations don’t seem to affect the performance of the lens,” Dr. “Since I’ve been starting to use the Aspheric lens I’m actually finding that I’m starting to get better night vision than I had with the standard Re STOR.” There are however, some patients who complain a little bit about their intermediate vision, that is, their reading point is a little too close, he said. Horn, on the other hand, who often implants the Re STOR Aspheric bilaterally, said that he started noticing that the Re STOR might actually be good enough for some of those patients needing intermediate vision.
I did consider having Lasik, but the combination of high Myopia and thin Cornea meant I was a borderline case.
In contrast, my wife Wendy at -3 diopters had Lasik done in 2002 by Dr. Keller of Boulder Eye Surgeons (ironically our neighbor across the street) and she had excellent results.
