In years past, the main goal of cataract surgery was to restore a person’s vision for distance vision tasks such as driving or watching TV. The cataract options available today, though, give people a chance to see at various distances through multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs).
Extend and Sharpen Your Vision Range With Multifocal Intraocular Lenses Such as Tecnis
Gone are the days of requiring bifocals after cataract surgery. You can work on the computer or see the game from the back of the stands without bifocals or switching eyeglasses, and with greater image contrast as IOLs improve chromatic aberration.
Multifocal Intraocular lenses, including Symfony® and Technis® expand your range of clear vision. Patients who choose multifocal IOLs to may only need glasses occasionally, if at all, after cataract surgery. This provides much more freedom after surgery, allowing you to gain a clearer, longer vision range.
Wear contacts for farsightedness? The correction of presbyopia after cataract surgery is similar to bifocal and multifocal contact lenses. Multifocal lenses are implanted inside the eye, making your daily contact routine non-existent. This saves you a lot of time and money! Since you gain lasting effects from multifocal IOLs, you no longer need a prescription for your lenses every year, also helping you save time and money.
According to the manufacturer, 9 out of 10 people who have had Tecnis Multifocal IOLs implanted have enjoyed being glasses free after the surgery. It is designed with many focal points with in the lens, allowing multiple distances to be seen well. No more squinting!
Mixing Multifocal And Monofocal Lenses
Sounds crazy, right? Your cataract surgeon might recommend it when treating cataracts in both eyes. Why? Each person is different, with specific and unique visual needs. Each type of surgery is different, and each one has its own benefits. So, if one eye needs a multifocal lens and the other is best treated with a monofocal lens, your treatment will be customized to reflect that.
