Which is the best lens to place in the eye after a cataract surgery? My optometrist says that the 'yellow alon' lens is best and the surgeon says that a tech lens is better. Whichone should be used?

Surgeon preference: They all have advantages and disadvantages, most have to do with surgeons preference. I prefer the amo technis lens.
