The Tecnis® Multifocal intraocular lens can significantly improve vision shortly after having cataract surgery. This lens can provide freedom from glasses at all distances – even in dim light.
Unlike a typical monofocal lens which only corrects vision at a distance, the Tecnis® Multifocal provides high quality eyesight whether near, far or somewhere in between.
If you enjoy a good book, playing golf, knitting, scanning the internet, or other activities that require vision at various distances, having the Tecnis® Multifocal lens will enable you to live the lifestyle you want.
Nearly 9 out of 10 patients with the Tecnis® Multifocal lens never have to wear glasses after the procedure. If they could do it all over, 94% of patients would choose to have the Tecnis® Multifocal implanted again, according to a recent clinical study.
The lens removal and implant technique used with the Tecnis® Multifocal IOL procedure is performed over 15 million times per year This lens is known for its safety and reliability. Despite this, every surgical procedure has risks and side effects. Some patients may experience an adjustment period to their new lenses in which they encounter a glare or halos around bright light. This usually goes away over a period of weeks or months.
