    My doctor has scheduled me for cataract surgery and is offering me the
    choice of lenses : Acrysof WF or Tecnis, unifocal

    The Tecnis lens seems very interesting for night driving but lacks blue
    light protection.

    The Acrysof WF worries me in respect to halos and glare while driving
    at night.

    Have done alot of reading on these subjects but cannot find much info
    as to the necessity of wearing yellow sunglasses with the Tecnis lens,
    as to when and where.

    I am 60, drive a great deal in my travels and spend many hours outside.

    Any info wil be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
