Blurry Vision in Dim Light with Clear Lens Extraction

Question: I just had my Clear Lens Extraction operation 3 weeks ago and still have blurred vision if  in dim light or darker places or at night. Is this normal?

Answer: While the Clear Lens Extraction procedure itself should not cause a reduction in dim light vision, the type of lens implant you had might very well contribute to this phenomenon. Pretty much all multifocal les implants-some more than others-do cause a reduction is contrast sensitivity as well as the sensation of reduced vision in dim or dark conditions.
