Multifocal Intraocular Lens
Multifocal intraocular lens technology is revolutionary in that it gives millions of people the opportunity to regain the vision they had when they were younger. For healthy, active adults, the limitations of poor vision from cataracts and presbyopia have had a negative effect on their lifestyle and daily activities. After a multifocal lens implant, they can now enjoy high-quality vision for all distances—near, far, and everything in between—without wearing bifocals or reading glasses in most situations.
Because of this advanced technology, people can expect high-quality vision for all of their daily activities, such as reading, traveling, knitting, using the computer, cooking, golfing, and driving—without wearing glasses. According to a clinical study, 90% of patients are able to function without glasses at all distances and nearly 9 out of 10 patients never wear glasses again.
Glare and/or rings around lights at night can be an issue with most any multifocal intraocular lens implant. For the vast majority of patients it is something they notice but it is not disabling. This tends to lessen over time and most people find it to be a non-issue.
There is a non-covered expense associated with these lenses that Medicare and third party insurers do not allow. Credit is available if you wish to pay the amount over time. Ask your Medicus ophthalmologist if this lens might be right for you!
