Tecnis Multifocal IOL

In the late 1990s, Advanced Medical Optics (AMO) introduced its first multifocal IOL designed to provide multiple points of focus, thereby dramatically reducing the need for bifocals or trifocal glasses after surgery. Today, with its many optical design enhancements, AMO’s third-generation Tecnis Multifocal IOL ™ provides patients with a full range of vision and greater […]

ReSTOR Multifocal IOL

About the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL Apodized Diffractive Optics for a Full Range of Vision In the healthy eye, the lens flexes to focus on objects at varying distances. The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL was designed to provide a complete range of vision independent of the ciliary body muscle. To achieve this, the AcrySof® IQ […]

Crystalens Accommodating IOL

Is Crystalens right for you? What is Crystalens? Crystalens is an artificial lens implant that, unlike a standard IOL, can treat both a person’s cataracts and presbyopia—loss of near and intermediate vision. You probably noticed in your forties that you started to lose some of your up-close vision and had to start wearing reading glasses. […]

Presybyopia IOLs

Presbyopia IOLs are more recent innovations that are designed to significantly improve depth of focus.  Use of these IOLs during cataract extraction or refractive lensectomy may reduce or eliminate the need for corrective lenses for distance, intermediate and near visual tasks. Since both eyes are generally focused at a similar distance, stereopsis or depth perception […]

Standard IOLs and Monovision

Single focus IOLs can be electively targeted for distance focus in one eye and intermediate or near focus in the other eye. When both eyes are open, this optical condition, called “monovision” provides good simultaneous distance and intermediate (computer distance) or reading distance but the downside is some loss of binocularity or sterovision. Not all […]

Standard Intraocular Lens (IOL)

The lens of an eye which is cloudy and no longer adequately transparent to light is called a Cataract. This causes vision to be blurry, hazy and colors to be washed out; much like foggy sunglasses that need to be cleaned. Once vision is sufficiently compromised, cataract surgery may be recommended by your doctor. The eye’s cloudy natural lens is removed during cataract […]

What is Presbyopia?

Accommodation refers to the ability of the crystalline lens (located behind the pupil) of the eye to instantly change shape in order to bring into focus objects located at different distances from our face. For example, we might need to focus on the moon (infinity), our computer (intermediate, or about 60 cm) or a book […]
