    Question:

    What are the drawbacks or negatives of choosing a multifocal lens?


    Answer:

    Multifocal intraocular lenses more often appear to be associated with an increased chance of seeing halos and experiencing glare than monofocal implants. In addition, reduced night vision has been reported. And the increased cost of these implants might be considered a "drawback." It is very important for any patient considering multifocal implants to have a thorough pre-operative discussion regarding realistic expectations with his or her ophthalmologist.
