Yes: Just like with any cataract surgery procedure, there are risks associated with the surgery such as infection, bleeding, pain and loss of vision. With multifocal implants these risks are no different. In addition to these risks there are common issues with these implants such as "halos" around lights or neon signs at night. This is usually an issue with the nonaccomodating implants.
