    We interpreted the clinical data from 16 eyes with a 3M multifocal implant and compared them with data from 16 monofocal implants with the same follow-up period. The multifocal implant has several disadvantages: a lower initial visual acuity, a higher frequency of posterior synechiae, and slightly more difficult ophthalmoscopy than with conventional lenses. The great advantage of the multifocal implant is the good near visual acuity without additional correction.
