Which lens is better after cataract surgery? Question from a patient.

If you mean which implant to choose for an intraocular lens implant, see Cataract Surgery Options at eyedoc2020.blogspot.com. If you mean which lens is better after cataract surgery: depends on residual refractive error (is there astigmatism, reading ok? what IOL was placed?). If you need reading, intermediate, distance rx, progressives glasses are best for young patients if brain can learn a new trick.

If a patient is not motivated to learn how to use progressives or is significantly older, bifocals or monofocals (one for each distance: reading glasses, computer glasses, distance glasses) is best option, though still a big pain and expensive given the 3 different glasses.
