But today, cataract patients have the choice of multifocal IOLs that can correct vision far away, up close and all distances in between.

Doctors Campbell, Shin and Kim will help guide you in your selection from these various lens implants.
In the past, the primary goal of cataract surgery was to restore a person's vision for driving, watching television, and other distance vision tasks.
