In cases of anisometropia, looking downwards will induce a differential prism, and the patient may complain that reading is more difficult with their new multifocal lenses compared to their distance vision
Osama Giledi,Consultant Ophthalmologist,Specialist in Cataract, Cornea and Refractive Vision Correction Surgery,explained that LASIK vision correction would not offer the best results, as the patient would still need to use glasses for the intermediate and near distance vision
And so I continued to wear glasses, ostensibly for distance vision
, but, because I am a) lazy; b) prone to losing things; and c) too vain to wear a Larry Grayson-style spectacles chain, I only ever took them off for sleeping and showering.

A 78-year-old woman with a history of a remote right-sided cerebrovascular accident complained of painless, progressive onset of binocular horizontal diplopia, elicited by switching from near to distance vision

In these cases, their distance vision
correction is optimized.
LASIK or PRK laser correction is typically done to correct distance vision
, but you can request specific powers be done to see at a specific point, just like the Verifier lenses.
In the past, Brillis said, if someone with cataract needed an artificial lens, they were confined to one that was only fixing their distance vision
, and using glasses for other conditions, but today, Alcon's AcrySof PanOptixtrifocalIOL, addresses patients' near, intermediate, and distance vision
needs with a single lens.
