Multifocal Intraocular Lenses (IOLs)
New ‘Multi-Focal’ FDA-approved implant lenses are now available that have significantly decreased our patient’s need for reading glasses after cataract surgery. Many patients relied heavily on reading glasses after cataract removal in the past, but are now enjoying the freedom of being glasses-free. This advanced technology is having an amazing impact on the lifestyle of cataract patients, restoring youthful vision in the ability to see in the distance, up close for reading, and everything in between.
These ‘multifocal’ or ‘accommodating’ implant lenses are designed differently from one another and can be custom selected for your unique needs. Only after a comprehensive examination and discussion, can you and our surgeons choose the right lenses for your lifestyle. Our patients have enjoyed great success with the Crystalens®, Rezoom™ and ReSTOR® multi-focal implant lenses.
Total Eye Care has been recognized as a Crystalens® “Center of Excellence”!
Crystalens® is the first and only ‘accommodating’ intraocular lens. Standard or single vision implant lenses are unable to provide a full range of vision. Using a state-of-the-art hinged design, the Crystalens® is able to flex and change shape which mimics the focusing of the natural lens of the human eye. For the patient, this means sharper vision across a broad range of distances to reduce or eliminate dependency on glasses. While patients with Crystalens® implants are experiencing increased freedom without the need for glasses, some still use a mild prescription for occasional refinement of their vision for extended periods of reading. Recent FDA studies to evaluate the success and satisfaction of patients with Crystalens® technology has shown tremendous results. Of the patients with Crystalens® implants, 92% of patients who had Crystalens® implants in both eyes were able to see 20/25 or better at distance without glasses after their procedures. Over 96% of patients stated they could see at arm’s length, like the computer or dashboard of a car, and 73% could see 20/25 or better at near without glasses or contact lenses.
