Cataract surgery

Dear Doctor, My mom (age 47) has undergone cataract surgery in one eye. One she can see things at long distance clearly. She is also a diabetic patient. Now soon she will have to undergo surgery for the next eye also. Doctor is suggesting her to keep a different focal lens so that she can see near objects. So basically she will be able to see things at far distance using one eye and other can be used for seeing near objects. Is this the right approach?

Eye Drops Contaminated?

I was prescribed apdrops eye drops for an eye infection. As soon as I opened the bottle (expiry in 2019), I found the liquid to be very yellow and green in colour. I used the drops 7 times in 3 days. I found that the drops left a greenish-yellow residue when I accidentally dropped it on the floor as well as on my cheeks when they rolled down. I bought a new bottle (expiry in 2019) and it was much clearer in colour and didn't seem to leave any residue. What should I do now? Attached is the residue left by the Moxifloxacin Eye Drops
