    Cataract surgery/Symfony - poor near vision

    Had cataract surgery on left eye four weeks ago, right eye one week ago. My near vision (iPhone, watch, etc.) is very bad, cannot see anything without 1.5 reading glasses. Far vision (computer and beyond) is pretty good, no major complaints. Getting a lot of 'flairing' which is very distracting but livable.

    I am quite disturbed with my near vision - have to put on and take off reading glasses to see anything, meaning I have to do it many times per hour. Cannot see food on a plate in front of me. Cannot use my phone effectively. Cannot see my watch, of if I get up in the middle of the night, I cannot see what time it is without putting on glasses.

    Any reactions/advise would be greatly appreciated. I am very unhappy with this situation. Thanks.
