Does not damage eye: Using plus lens therapy will not cause physical damage to the eye such as cataract. It could cause alignment problems at near, because normally the focusing of the eye at near is tied in with the in-turning of the eyes needed for viewing a close object. Plus lenses eliminate the need to focus, so the eyes might not turn-in adequately, and thus may cause eye strain symptoms or double vision. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How should i cure myself of peripheral vision loss.I am 78 years old and 10 yrs ago , i had both my eyes operated for cataract by the lasik laser .?
Peripheral: There are several reasons for peripheral vision loss-- they include glaucoma, retinal diseases, trauma, and cataract surgery. The implant placed inside the eye is smaller in diameter than the cataract. Thus, the effective viewing area is smaller, and the peripheral vision is reduced.

Sometimes distance vision is affected primarily, other times it's mainly near vision. Of course, both far and near vision can be affected. So it all depends on what you're primarily doing and how you feel your vision is affected. ...Read more
