The TECNIS® multifocal intraocular lens that is designed to provide both near and distance vision to people who wish not to be dependent on contacts or glasses following cataract surgery. The multifocal technology creates a number of different focal points, like bifocal eye glasses. This causes visual improvements at multiple distances, be it near, mid-distance, or far, with little to no dependence on glasses after surgery. These visual improvements are experienced by patients even in poor or dim lighting conditions.
Patients looking to live an active lifestyle after with minimal dependence on glasses and contact lenses find that the Tecnis Multifocal Lens enables them to do so. Whether you’re reading a menu, at work on your computer, or driving, you can rest assured that you will experience high quality vision Tecnis Multifocal Lens.
Your surgeon will make a tiny incision, less than 1/8 of an inch wide, and use gentle vacuum suction to remove the natural lens from your eye. Next, through the same micro-incision, your TECNIS multifocal IOL will be inserted, unfolded, and placed into the proper position. The incision is “self-healing” and usually requires no stitches — it heals quickly and provides a much more comfortable recuperation. The whole procedure usually takes less than 15 minutes.
If you have been diagnosed with cataracts, and wish to reduce or eliminate your dependence on glasses after cataract surgery, you may be a good candidate for a TECNIS Multifocal IOL. Our doctors and staff will perform diagnostic testing, and discuss your lifestyle and visual goals to determine if this lens is a good fit for you. The best way to find out if you are a candidate is to schedule a cataract consultation.
