The multifocal lens procedure is an advanced treatment for cataracts that helps most people see near, far and everything in between without depending on glasses all the time.
Unlike conventional single-vision (monofocal) lens implants, state-of-the-art multifocal intraocular lenses have been specially designed with multifocal zones that provide good vision across the spectrum of varying distances and light conditions. So you can see well anywhere and anytime, be it near, far or in between. Patients no longer have to settle for monofocal lenses that only provide good distance vision with limited ability to see objects that are near without glasses.
The multifocal lens is a clear, foldable implant made of a high-refractive-index acrylic material. This new technology multifocal lens is designed to provide a full range of vision – near, distance and intermediate – after cataract treatment.
