monofocal vs monovision iol lens...anybody?

I am 47 and have had a severe cataract removed from my right eye last week. I had a monofocal lens put in. I can see great now (at a distance) & I am very grateful for this, as I could barely read the large letter E on the eyechart. I have a chance to chuck the reading glasses if I choose to have the left eye set for nearsighted view with the next iol lens. I have never had the chance to try monovision with a contact lens & because my cataracts are so severe, I will not be able to test this.That's my problem. Does anyone here have their lens set for monovision? I may have to stick with the monofocal & keep the reading glasses for close activities. I do have this choice though... I would appreciate any feedback. Thank you Smile
