Intra-ocular lenses

I am REALLY squeamish about stuff getting in my eye. I can (barely) handle contact lenses, but the scene in A Clockwork Orange where they were propping his eyes open had me crawling backwards out of my skin.

But I'm probably going to need bifocals pretty soon. Thus my interest in this article about implanting lenses directly. The technique was developed first for people with cataracts but can be used to correct far-sightedness.

I'm not sure how this should compare to LASIK.
