I recently had cataract surgery where a toric lens was put inside each eye. I can now see everything like a teenager but there’s a side effect. These lenses create a “starburst” effect where strong points of light, like auto headlights, have spikes around them. The reason that you should consider this if you’re thinking about having cataract surgery is that the same things happen with red dots making them appear about 3-4 times bigger and can partially or fully obscure a small bullseye. I have red dots on a rifle and pistol and am considering iron or telescopic sights for each. Just a heads up, y’all!
