When you have your cataract removed, there are a dizzying array of choices including the type of intraocular lenses (multifocal, light adjustable lens *LAL*, monofocal, monovision, myopic, presbyopic accommodating, extended focus), surgical techniques (laser femto vs. manual), surgeons (high volume surgeon vs. low volume), and facilities (large academic or private institutions vs. HMO) that available to replace the natural lens. Each of these choices come with its own set of risks and benefits. Depending on your current eye condition and lifestyle, these risks and benefits may be exacerbated. Many doctors do not take the time to guide you through the procedure, thoroughly test for existing eye conditions, assist with pre- and post-op care, or provide unbiased cost-to-benefit ratio.
