Multifocal lenses are designed to help patients achieve excellent vision up close, as well as in the distance, reducing or potentially eliminating their dependence on glasses after surgery. Multifocal IOLs typically have concentric rings etched into their surface, allowing images at multiple distances to focus on the retina. We offer several different Multifocal lenses, including the PanOptix Trifocal IOL, the Symfony Multifocal IOL, and the TECNIS Multifocal IOL.

Cataract patients with significant astigmatism may benefit from having a toric lens implant. Toric IOLs are designed to correct astigmatism, along with nearsightedness or farsightedness. These lenses, thanks to their unique design, help counterbalance corneal irregularities that cause astigmatism. This allows light to focus properly on the retina, correcting the patients astigmatism and distance vision. We offer several different toric lens implants, including the PanOptix Toric IOL, and the Symfony Toric IOL.

A conventional IOL is a monofocal lens implant that is designed to correct your vision at a single distance. Monofocal IOLs use aspheric technology to provide excellent contrast sensitivity, and high quality vision in a variety of lighting conditions.
Patients that have cataract surgery with a conventional IOL will likely need to use glasses or contact lenses after surgery to achieve their best vision.
