Re: Multi-focal lens implant for cataracts

I'm not that motivated - it is just that the ophthamologist sesm to be pushing me that way, as I said before apart from my night vision which has been going off for several years, I do not notice any difference between my eyes at present. When the "incipient" cataract was first detected 6 months ago, I was told it would be 2 to 5 years before any treatment would be required, I am beginning to wonder if the ophthamologist has some vested interest in pushing me towards surgery, anyway.

About 30 years ago when I first noticed "mercedes" streaks from traffic lights at night, I was told this was an early indication of oncoming cataracts, but nothing has changed on that front.
