Have searched these posts but my question isn't answered in older posts. Will have cataract surgery on right eye Wednesday. So busy with work, haven't done my homework for this surgery. Doc will use mono vision lense. Have astigmatism. Need some advice from you oldtimers. Dr. can correct the astigmatism if I want it, for $1,000. For those of you who have had your astigmatism corrected with your cataract surgery, how well did it turn out for you? Was it worth having it done? My glasses generally have astigmatism correction in them. Thoughts?

Still don't have an answer for my question. If you have had cataract surgery with correction for astigmatism, how well did that turn out for you? Did you have any vision problems from the surgery? Do you have good sight now, today? How is your distance vision today? Overall, are you pleased with the vision in the eye - or both eyes - that had the cataract surgery? Thank you so much!

Had cataract surgery this past week, with correction for astigmatism. It was done with laser so I paid extra for it. So far I believe it has been successful. I am very pleased .
