Blindness/Visual Impairment/cataract surgery

Question
Hello,
   I had lasic surgery about 10 years ago and it has been wonderful.  I had mono vision one eye for far and one for near.  Now I have just had both eyes cataract surgery and I can see far but not near.  I work with computers, reading and a lot of close work and it is driving me crazy.
   After my eyes heal could I get one contact lens to restore the near vision?  Will it be a problem after this surgery. How long before the eyes are healed enough to get one?

DEAR DON

Thank you for your query
YOU have 2 solutions to your problem either
1] use glasses for reading smaller ones which you can keep on nose lower so when you just turn your eyes downwards you will be able to read near
2] as you said correctly yes CONTACT LENSES are solution either one contact lens to use MONOVISION one eye for distance and one for near BUT better would be if you can wesr multifocal lenses so you can use both eyes for distance as well as near

please revert back to me if you have any additional query
