Yes, somebody asked this exact question in 2009
, but I was wondering if there's new people here on the green with opinions. Seems like I can't get a bead on how bad the nighttime haloing effects from the multifocal IOL's are from just reading stuff online. I understand some of it you get 'used to', but I'm still wondering if I'd be better off with a monofocal lens. I'm in my late 30's, which is younger than usual for cataract surgery, but I've got 'em in both eyes as confirmed by 3 different opthamologists. My plan is to only do the really crappy eye (since my good eye still doesn't notice it has one). Also wondering if anyone's had total laser surgery for their cataracts? as somebody here in town does that now as well. Thx mefiters.
