There are many benefits to a multifocal or trifocal lens such as improved vision, whether at near, far or mid-range distances. Seeing both near and far becomes your new norm. A multifocal lens procedure provides long term results, and usually does not require any upkeep. If patients in Boca Raton, Weston, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Plantation and Sunrise have cataracts, the multifocal lens can replace lenses that appear cloudy. This procedure also works for patients experiencing myopia, hyperopia, or presbyopia. Once you are examined by the ophthalmologist, he can recommend options that will best benefit you.
Why is it Called a Multifocal Lens?
The reason the lens is named multifocal is because there are different optical powers across the lens. This means that no matter where your eye moves and you look, the lens implant keeps your vision in focus. Patients in Boca Raton, Weston, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Plantation and Sunrise, considering multifocal or trifocal lenses, should consider having both eyes done at the same time. One of the many benefits of multifocal lens surgery is that you will no longer need to wear eyeglasses and contacts.
What Type of Multifocal Lens is Needed for My Surgery?
There are many types of multifocal intraocular lenses available and your ophthalmologist will discuss which are best for you, once he has performed a thorough examination. The first multifocal lens choice is the ReSTOR Multifocal implant. This implant will provide excellent vision when driving. This multifocal lens can reduce or eliminate the need for glasses when reading, driving, watching TV, using a computer or playing sports. Distances near or far are no longer a problem. Another type of multifocal lens which can improve your vision is TECNIS multifocal. Just as with the ReSTOR lens, there are diffractive rings, which help to improve vision at near and far. The third and most popular option for multifocal lenses is the PanOptix Trifcoal IOL. This multifocal IOL helps focus images clearly onto your retina, which provides distance vision clarity once cataracts are removed. This multifocal lens offers near vision, along with intermediate and distance vision, so reading and computer work become easy.
