Is there any difference in outcomes for Multifocal vs Monofocal cataract lenses?
Multifocal and monofocal lens implant offers different visual outcomes with their own sets of pros and cons.
Multifocal lens can help patients to see both far and near. Whereas, monofocal lens can only help patients to see best at only one focal distance (either far or near), which greatly depends on the doctor's advice.
Though multifocal lens offers the benefit of seeing near and distant object clearly, they are generally more costly. They are also suitable for a smaller percentage of patients compared to monofocal lens, as they tend to be more suitable for a healthy, young patients because visual adaptation is needed. Also, the number patients' complaints of glares/ halos for multifocal lens are generally more compared to that with monofocal lens.
I will strongly advise you to be patient during this 'recovery phase', and to adhere closely to your eye doctor's advice.
Wishing you all the best in your recovery!
