Cataract surgery can restore your distance vision, but you might still have a problem with close vision. A multifocal lens in the form of an intraocular lens (IOL) can help to expand your range of clear vision, near, far and in-between. SightTrust Eye Institute can help you with a multifocal lens in Boca Raton or Palm Beach. Their eye specialist and surgeon uses advanced technologies such as intraocular multifocal lenses, refractive lens exchanges and LenSx laser procedures to help improve and restore eyesight.
As we age, our near sight slowly diminishes. This condition is known as presbyopia. If you live long enough you will also develop cataracts. Fortunately, these conditions are treatable and even reversible. With the help of an intraocular multifocal lens and cataract surgery, your near and distant vision can be substantially improved.
Even if you don’t have cataracts you can still suffer from conditions such as presbyopia, near-sightedness and/or farsightedness. Clear lens extraction or refractive lens exchange is a procedure where an eye surgeon will replace the damaged natural lens with an intraocular multifocal lens.
The good news is that IOL and cataract surgery is a one-time procedure. When the new IOL lens is in place, you will have proper vision for the remainder of your life. That means you won’t develop cataracts again or require IOL surgery again.
