Can a Multifocal lens implant reduce or eliminate the need for glasses for distance and reading vision after cataract surgery?
During cataract surgery, the clouded natural lens of the eye is replaced by an intraocular lens implant, referred to as an IOL. Today, patients now have options to choose the type of IOL based on their individual needs and lifestyle.
Dealing with the hassles and inconveniences of reading glasses is one of the most common complaints by patients. Many people who are use to glasses or contact lenses will no longer need them after having multifocal lenses with cataract surgery. They can see far away and easily see their phone or work on the computer without their glasses. For some patients that choose multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs), may end up with better vision than they’ve had in years.
