Laser Cataract Surgery with Multifocal Lens Implant is used to treat the condition known as cataracts. In patients with cataracts, the lens of the eye becomes clouded, making it difficult for the patient to see. In cataract surgery, the doctor replaces the clouded lens with an artificial replacement. In some situations, the doctor uses laser to create incisions in the cornea and emulsify the lens. After this has occurred, the doctor can remove the lens fragments and insert the multifocal lens replacement. The multifocal lens can let the patient see clearly at near, intermediate, and far distances.
