Howard S. Weiss, MD has more than 20 years of experience as a prominent cataract surgeon. Howard S. Weiss, MD practices in Washington, DC and is an expert in astigmatic and multifocal lens implants.

Astigmatic and multifocal lens implants help patients reduce their dependence on eyeglasses after cataract surgery. With these lens implants, patients can usually enjoy activities such as driving, reading, and/or watching television without glasses.

The success of astigmatic and multifocal lens implants varies for each patient, and some implant recipients still need to use eyeglasses for certain activities. Some may choose to have laser vision correction to get additional improvement. Most patients who have multifocal lens implants are happy with the process and the result.
