I have started having close up vision problems. I have always had trouble with distance. Can you help both. I see better without my contacts close up would the surgery change this. Together they are driving me nuts.

Welcome to the world of presbyopia...a natural consequence of aging. There are no "cures" for presbyopia, but there are a few ways to work around the problem.

I recommend that you read Monovision and consider the relative benefits of monovision correction.
