    Poor results with cataract surgery. Dr sold me an expensive ($4500) Bausch & Lomb Crystalens lens for eye with previous Lasik. When I asked if distance vision would be as good as normal lens he said yes. My vision was about 20/40 going in and was 20/40 coming out but his surgery resulted thick floaters that are still there after a year. During this time he was having a big promotion on this expensive lens. You decide.
