Cataract surgery + implant filter: My mother is about to have the first of two cataract surgeries and is considering bifocal implants.

My mother is in her early 70's and wears bifocal glasses now. She's very active, still works, and seems like a good candidate for bifocal implants. I've done some research and am intrigued by the Crystalens (thanks to an AskMetafilter question from 2009) as it reportedly has better outcomes for night driving after surgery.
Any experiences with the decision to get implants during cataract surgery, choices you would have made differently, and input about specific implants are welcome!
