Multifocal and Accommodating IOLs
Multifocal and accommodating lenses are exciting developments in vision correction after cataract surgery. These lenses may grant you the ability to be less dependent on glasses for long distance, intermediate and near vision all at once. They are presbyopia correcting lenses. Please click here to take our Premium Lens Self Test as a starting point, and read below to have a better understanding on these lenses.
Premium lenses are only appropriate for some patients, and your eye surgeon or ophthalmologist can help you determine if you are a good candidate. It is also important to understand that most patients with multifocal lenses will have halos or glare around lights in dark conditions, and some may notice that they will need more light to read.
During the proper selection of the best IOL for you, as decided by you and your eye specialist, there are a number of tests that must be performed to allow for computer formulas to choose the best lens power for your eye. Despite all of our advanced technology, please keep in mind that you still may need glasses or contact lenses to have the best vision allowed after surgery.
These multifocal and accommodating lenses (presbyopia correcting lenses) are designed to both replace cataracts and correct presbyopia, greatly reducing dependence on glasses for both near and distance vision. Most premium lens recipients find that they can resume their favorite hobbies and routine activities, such as reading and golfing, with an increased freedom from glasses.
