Re: Multi-focal lens implant for cataracts

tumbleweed, My eye doctor gave me literature listing the various lens options. Multifocal implants can present certain complications as far as calibration is concerned and they are not covered by USA government health insurance. I have been wearing progressive (variable focus) eyeglasses for 15+ years after graduating from bifocals. With variable focus, everything appears wavy at first but after a short time one adapts. What motivates you to have surgery? In my case, I was experiencing difficulty driving at night. I drove my car last nite and can detect improvement. senior41 27 January 2013
