Premium Lens Implants

Lens implants and intraocular lenses (IOL) work in a different ways to help you achieve your vision correction goals of being able to see at a variety of distances after cataract surgery, without being dependent on eyeglasses. Presbyopia correcting multifocal lens implants corrects both your distance vision and your presbyopia after cataract surgery. For the vast majority of patients, having a multifocal lens implant means that you will be able to see at distance and up close with less dependence on eyeglasses. So, patients choosing to have a presbyopia correcting multifocal lens implant will likely find that they can drive, watch television, read or do crafts without the need for glasses. Patients choosing multifocal lens implants typically experience a greater overall freedom from glasses allowing them to participate in most everyday activities without dependence on, or the hassle of glasses.

Premium Lens Implants for Correcting Presbyopia

Presently there are two types of intraocular lens implants: a monofocal lens and a multifocal lens. A monofocal lens implant provides excellent vision after cataract surgery, for one set distance only- usually for seeing things at a distance and thus does not correct presbyopia; it does not enable you to see close objects or read without reading glasses or bifocals. For seeing at a distance, such as driving, going to a movie, or going to a ball game, a monofocal lens implant will provide the vision you need to see clearly. With a monofocal lens implant you will most likely need to wear eyeglasses for any near vision activities like reading, sewing, playing card games, or writing.

A new and exciting alternative to monofocal lenses are multifocal lenses. A presbyopia correcting multifocal lens implant provides excellent vision after cataract surgery at a variety of distances. Depending on your specific vision requirement, there are several types of presbyopia correcting multifocal lens implants that your eye surgeon might suggest, including the Tecnis Multifocal Implant, ReStor Multifocal Lens Implant, and the Crystalens Lens Implant.
