Can seasonal affective disorder (SAD) light therapy have any effect on multifocal lenses implanted after cataract surgery?
The light would not damage the intraocular lens (IOL) or alter its focusing capabilities. But many patients with multifocal IOLs notice aberrations such as halos and glare, and I suppose that these might appear to be more apparent and troublesome during some forms of light therapy.
