Multi-focal lens implants for better distance and reading vision
The multi-focal lens implants are lenses that give you a better vision for distance and reading and now offers intermediate vision correction as well.
Some patients want to consider other options rather than just having a mono-focal lens implant. This option could be simply choosing a mono-focal lens, but we change the target. We make one eye good for reading, one eye for distance, and many patients enjoy that option because it gives them freedom for glasses so they can read, and they can drive a car without any glasses.
Other options are having multi-focal lens implants.
These give you the ability to see close up for reading and distance vision, as well as now intermittent vision, which is important to driving a car.
You can see the dashboard, or if you do your work in front of your computer, that works better with the multi-focal lens implant. These options fulfill your needs.
The other option is to have toric lens implants. These are lenses that correct astigmatism and in fact, the mono-focal lenses or multi-focal lenses either of them could be a toric lens as well. The ultimate goal is to give you the most precise visual outcomes of the surgery.
Cataract surgery is about more than just making you see
Cataract surgery is no longer about just washing out the cataract and making you see. It’s more than that. It’s a customized treatment to give you the best vision you can have. Sometimes we take advantage of the cataract operation to provide you with the freedom of glasses by choosing a special type of lens implants that make you read and see distance without needing glasses.
