Multifocal IOLs are the latest in implant technology. These not only treat Cataract but also turn back the clock by enabling you to see close and distant objects without using glasses.
With Multifocal implants, cataract surgery offers high success rate. Infact, 92% of the cataract patients after receiving Multifocal intraocular implants report that they “never or occasionally” need to use spectacles for their daily routine life. So, if you or your loved one has cataracts, consider Multifocal IOLs to get rid of cataract and glasses simultaneously.
As we age, our eye’s natural lens looses its flexibility and it gradually starts functioning like a Monofocal lens which provides focus only for one distance. So, a Multifocal lens substitutes for the eye’s inability to change its shape by allowing it to see at all distances.
Contrary to Monofocal lens which has the ability to focus only on one point to treat distance vision, these revolutionary Multifocal lenses provide the focus of both near and distant objects thus, making it easier for patients to reduce their dependency on glasses.
Multifocal IOLs are classified as zonal refractive or diffractive lenses. Though these different types of Multifocal IOLs provide distance and near vision, they have their own specific characteristics.
