Excerpt: "One hundred thirty-two physicians who responded to the survey reported an overall satisfaction rate of 95.3%... The physicians also responded to questions regarding issues with their vision following surgery, including difficulty with night driving, glare, or other ocular symptoms. In every category of ocular symptoms studied, fewer than 50% of the respondents said they experienced trouble; the most frequently reported items were eyes feeling irritated (50%), glare (43%), halos (41%), and seeing in dim light (35.2%)."
