MULTIFOCAL LENSES: YOUTHFUL VISION FOR CATARACT PATIENTS

WHAT ARE MULTIFOCAL LENSES?

The TECNIS® Multifocal and Alcon ReSTOR® lenses represent breakthrough technology because of their unique optic design which may allow patients to experience the highest level of freedom from glasses.

ADVANTAGES OF MULTIFOCAL LENSES

Multifocal lenses use complementary technology to allow patients to experience a full range of high-quality vision without the need for reading glasses or bifocals, even in low lighting conditions.

RESULTS OF MULTIFOCAL LENSES

During some of the clinical trials in the US, the results were impressive:

  • Nearly 9 out of 10 patients NEVER wear glasses
  • Nearly 90% of patients are able to function comfortably without glasses at ALL distances
  • Nearly 94% would choose to have the procedure done again

TORIC INTRAOCULAR LENSES: (ASTIGMATISM CORRECTING)

CORRECTING ASTIGMATISMS WITH INTRAOCULAR LENSES

Many eyes have an astigmatic shape.  Much like a football surface has two curves in comparison to a basketball surface which has only one uniform curvature, an eye with astigmatism has more than one shape of optical curvature.  This results in blurring of images at all distances unless corrected by glasses, contacts, or surgery.  Astigmatism is now routinely corrected simultaneously with cataract surgery using toric (astigmatism correcting) lenses.

TREATMENT FOR MODERATE TO SEVERE AMOUNTS OF ASTIGMATISM

Moderate to severe amounts of astigmatism are best treated with a lens implant such as the TECNIS® Symfony or AcrySof® IQ toric lenses.

TREATMENT FOR LOWER AMOUNTS OF ASTIGMATISM

Lower amounts may be treated with precise astigmatism correcting laser incisions using the LenSx laser.
