Help me understand presbyopia-correcting IOLs surgery

I am getting cataract surgery (which is fully covered by my insurance) but they also gave me the option to pay out of pocket for "not medically necessary" presbyopia-correcting IOLs which I don't really understand, and it costs about $2,261 per eye. What does this presbyopia-correcting IOL do exactly? And is it worth the money for me? I am very confused. Tanks

Anyone know an awesome Ophthalmologist around Lantana, TX area (Dallas)?

Long story short: Grandma needs cataract surgery and knows no one to get a personal recommendation from and I don't live in the area. Any help or personal experience is incredibly appreciated.

Old English Sheepdogs

My parents have an Old English sheepdog, and while he has the most adorable set of eyes, we can't help but wonder, is there a medical reason that so many other sheepdog owners keep the fur covering their eyes? Are Old English sheepdogs prone to cataracts?
