Has anyone here had the TECNIS Multifocal Lens implant?

Hi I am new here. I am a 55 yr old female. I would like to know if anyone here has ever had the TECNIS Multifocal Lens implant. I went to the eye dr this week and found out I have beginning of cataracts. My dr offered to do this procedure to remove the cataract and insert a new lens into my eye. It is not the same as lasik surgery. This lens is good for life, and you never have to wear glasses again. You also wont have night blindness either. The procedure is done in out patient and only takes 15- 45 mins. You are awake through the procedure but without any pain at all. They only cut an 1/8th in cut to insert the lens. It works for both nearsighted and far sighted. Your vision should be clear again as in younger days. Sounds like a miracle, huh? Well I am thinking on it and considering it but I wish I could find someone who had it done so I could talk with them and see how it was for them. My Dr is well accredited and was the first to introduce this surgery in La in 2010. But I would still like to find someone who had it done. Anyone out there who did?
