Hi, I was wondering if anyone uses bifocals, trifocals, or progressive lenses? I am/was nearsighted, but am in the process of getting cataract surgery. I'm kind of young for a cataract patient at 24, but my cataracts formed very quickly in 4 months. To make a long story short, they developed because the radiation and steroids I was on as a leukemia and stem cell transplant patient for the past 4-5 years.
If you do wear these types of corrective lenses because decreased focusing power (accommodation), how are your work and drawing habits? Was it hard to adjust? Are you able to draw from life?
I was able to do this self-portrait fairly quickly just as the cataracts started to develop. I'm wondering if I still can with the new way my eyes will work with monofocal intraocular lenses that have no focusing power.
