In brief: Yes

With the right selection of patient to receive this lens and the proper expectations of the type of vision to be expected, this has been a helpful addition to this surgery.
It is gradually becoming more commonplace and the available lenses are continuously being improved. Note that it is an extra personal expense not covered by insurance or medicare. Discuss with you eye surgeon.

In brief: Yes

Yes. The crystalens series and upcoming synchrony lens are accommodative lenses which work reasonable well.
