    I went back to my eye doctor two days ago for another follow up
    because I still wasn't happy with my Purevision multifocal lens (right
    eye only). The vision in my left eye was PERFECT with a Purevision
    single-vision lens, and my right eye had very good distance vision
    with the multifocal, but close-up just wasn't acceptable. My eye was
    straining terribly to see small print.

    So... she says to me, "Let's try something BRAND NEW and you get to be
    the first person in this area to try them!" She left the room and
    then came back with a set of Acuvue Oasys Multiocals! She said they
    had just come in and she wanted me to use me as her first trial

    She had me try two sets with various combinations of power and low/mid/
    high additions. I couldn't see far or near with either set. The third
    set was better, but after wearing for two days, I feel they aren't
    working. I really want these to work, but the only "crisp" vision I
    have is mid-range. I can't see close up (everything is doubled... or
    shadowed), and my distance vision is distorted. I'm not having much
    luck. I love the way they feel on my eyes.

    I have to go back next week for an evaluation, and I think I'm going
    to wind up staying in plain old monovision with my original Oasys
    lenses :(
