In the past, all replacement lenses were a type called a Monofocal Lens, also called a basic lens.
A Monofocal Lens is a fixed lens that doesn't move. It is designed to deliver improved vision at just

for near and intermediate vision, even if you didn't wear glasses before surgery.
The cost of Monofocal Lenses is typically covered by Medicare or private insurance as part of the cataract procedure.
