How do one decide on the kind of lens to be used for cataract surgery. What should be taken care of in this decision. Thanks.

hello a. most important factor is the pocket of patinet...usually alcon or AMO lenses are very good but these may be expensive...if you can afford then go for these lenses else go with simple hydrophilic lenses
