Many cataract surgery patients consider multifocal lens a replacement instead of the older monofocal lens. The multifocal lens offers the ability to see near, far or midway, without the use of eyeglasses. The reason so many patients want to explore the multifocal lens as an option is because of the varying degrees of sight improvement and sharper vision it offers. Once the surgery is complete and you have healed, there is no upkeep needed and it will provide long lasting results.
The Latest in Multifocal Lens Replacement
Patients from Boca Raton, Miami, Davie, Palm Beach, and the surrounding areas discuss multifocal lens options with Dr. Andrew Shatz at the SightTrust Eye Institute. As one of the leading cataract surgeons in the nation, he has advanced laser cataract surgery training and has performed more than 25,000 intraocular lens procedures over the last 20 years. Continually staying up to date with the latest technology, the doctor and staff will discuss the benefits of having multifocal lens replacement. Replacing the worn natural lens with the multifocal lens is a quick procedure, usually taking less than thirty minutes and doesn’t require anesthesia, only eye drops to numb the eye. After the procedure, you will rest for approximately thirty more minutes and then you can go home. The staff recommends taking it easy for a few days and try not to get dirt or debris in your eyes. Although this is a quick, painless and easy procedure, it’s still a surgery and requires easing back into your lifestyle in Davie, Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Weston, so you can heal properly.
