This basic lens provides a single focus distance vision. Because of this, those who wish to correct their vision at both near and far distances will still need to supplement their vision with glasses. For those that don’t mind wearing glasses for certain tasks, standard lenses are a great option. Our cataract specialists can help walk you through your options and find the lens that is best suited for you and your desired outcome after surgery.
Multifocal or Accommodating Correction
Where a standard lens provides vision at a single distance, an advanced technology lens such as a multifocal or accommodating IOL, will be the best choice if you want to maximize your ability to focus at varying distances while minimizing your dependency on glasses.
Recent advancements in multifocal technology now make it possible for people to see at multiple distances without the help of magnifying glasses or bifocals (even trifocals). You can experience your vision close-up while reading the paper or your favorite book and then enjoy seeing at a distance when you’re looking at the sunset or watching TV. These lenses have the ability to consistently offer improved vision at various ranges.
For people who are active and are inhibited by wearing glasses, multifocal lenses are a premium option that can accommodate you and your favorite activities.
