That is exactly what I did.  I'm a left-eyed shooter so I had the left eye
focused for distance and the right eye for reading.  It has worked

I can now focus my manual cameras with my left eye and I can read
the screen on the camera with my right eye.  I had done this with contact
lenses many years ago so I didn't think I would have a problem adjusting
and I didn't.

It was the best thing I've ever done for my eyes.  Absolutely amazing and

Good luck and best wishes for your surgery!
