Multifocal Lenses are a revolutionary technology that gives people the opportunity to regain the vision they had when they were younger. For healthy, active adults, the limitations of poor vision from cataracts and presbyopia (inability to focus on near objects without reading glasses) have had a negative effect on their lifestyle and daily activities.
After a Multifocal Lens implant, they can now enjoy high-quality vision for all distances - near, far, and everything in between - in all lighting conditions without wearing bifocals or reading glasses in most situations.
Almost everyone will experience age-related vision loss from presbyopia and cataracts. Presbyopia is the loss of near vision, which usually happens around age 50. Most people begin developing cataracts at age 60 or older, which is a clouding of the natural lens of the eye. Cataract surgery is the most common surgical procedure, with over 15 million procedures performed every year.
The Multifocal IOL is uniquely designed to address the problems associated with these vision conditions. Through advanced technology, people can expect high-quality vision for all of their daily activities, such as reading, traveling, knitting, using the computer, cooking, golfing, and driving - without wearing glasses. According to a clinical study, 90% of patients are able to function without glasses at all distances and nearly 9 out of 10 patients never wear glasses again.
Also, the Multifocal provides high-quality vision in all lighting situations, including dim environments. This allows people to read a menu in a dimly lit restaurant and drive at night without depending on glasses. Immediately after surgery, some people may experience rings around lights when driving at night, but this typically lessens or goes away over time.
Multifocal Toric IOLs offer sharper vision and unparalleled low-light performance for astigmatic patients. After receiving this lens, many of our patients report a new ability to see clearly in all lighting conditions and increased confidence driving at night without glasses. In addition, the lens provides a natural range of focus, ensuring enhanced eyesight at near, intermediate and far distances.
