Am I a candidate for a multifocal implant?

  • I you want to dispense with the need for glasses for reading as well as distance: then you are a candidate. However you need to understand that there is a small amount of loss of potential clarity with these lenses and that at night you may experience some minor haloes about lights that should not be an issue unless you do a lot of night driving.

What is their cost?

  • For insured patients, the health funds cover their cost. Multifocal lenses add about $1000 per eye to the cost of conventional cataract surgery for uninsured.
