Mutlifocal Intraocular Lenses for Cataract Surgery
Conventional cataract surgery patients usually see well in the distance without spectacles but they often have difficulty with near work activities without spectacles. In other words, following cataract surgery, glasses will be needed most of the time for tasks such as reading, paying bills, hobby and craftwork, card playing and grocery shopping.
Many patients desire better visual function following cataract surgery and do not want to have to be dependent on spectacles all the time for their near vision tasks. For these patients we recommend a procedure termed Multifocal IOL Cataract Surgery.
Our practice has extensive experience with this technology as we have been performing Multifocal IOL Cataract Surgery for over two years. Patients are extremely pleased with the results of their surgery because they rely much less on glasses than they would have had they undergone conventional cataract surgery.
Because Multifocal IOL Cataract surgery allows for greater freedom from spectacles than conventional cataract surgery we recommend Multifocal IOL Cataract Surgery to our patients that desire a more natural and functional vision than standard cataract surgery provides.
Some patients may not be candidates for this procedure because of other co-existing ophthalmic problems besides their cataract. All relevant eye conditions will be discussed with you by your surgeon.
