Question: I had cataract surgery and had toric lens implants to correct my vision. I now am having trouble seeing at distance. Is this normal?
Answer: You do not say how long ago you had the Cataract Surgery and Toric Lens Implants. However after a relatively short time you should be able to see quite clearly at distance. Depending on your actual prescription before the Cataract Surgery, it is highly likely that you would still need to wear eyeglasses to help you read and possibly see intermediate distances. If this is not the case you should consult your Cataract Surgeon and be evaluated as to why not.
