    I have nystagmus and have high myopia (-15). My BCVA is 20/80 on
    average.

    Would CLE give me better quality vision along with a better BCVA?

    I'm thinking my nystagmus may not allow me to get the best result from
    my contacts.

    What are the chances of achieving 20/70 or better?

    Thanks

    I am not a doctor but I dont see how IOLs would improve things over
    contacts. Maybe vision theraphy to improve whatever disorders you have
    would be more effective. If your reason is to correct your super high
    myopia and avoid cateracts, maybe IOLs could be justified. If you have
    no good reason or unrelistic expectations, stick with glasses and
    contacts. Try vision theraphy and natural vision improvement. How did
    your eyes get so bad and how well do you see without glasses, how far
    can you count fingers? Just curious what a -15 sees!
