I am a high grade myopic. I’m so nearsighted that I can’t even count how many fingers someone is holding up across the room (the crudest eye test out there) without my glasses. It started when I was in second grade and my teachers and my parents didn’t believe me for the longest time when I asked to sit closer to the blackboard - because that’s where my best friend sat. He was placed there because he was a little hyper, and I was put in the back of the room because I was so well behaved.
I have wondered the same thing if I need cataract surgery. I have worn glasses for high myopia all my life. I like the protection they provide. I suppose with the intraocular implant you can choose whatever focal distance you would want. I think I might prefer to have 2020 at reading distance and be able to read and use the computer while relaxing at home without glasses. But continue to wear them for daily life and driving.
