Multifocal or accommodating intraocular lens
Acry Sof IQ Re STOR multifocal IOLs, marketed by Alcon, have been approved for use in the U. This optimizes image quality in all lighting conditions, according to Alcon.For example, in low-light conditions, as the pupil dilates, more light is distributed to elements in the lens required for clear distance vision.
Another option is to use a multifocal IOL in one eye, and another type of presbyopia-correcting IOL called a Crystalens accommodating IOL in the other eye to take advantage of the unique benefits of each of these premium IOLs to expand your range of clear vision without glasses.
If you need cataract surgery and you want the greatest freedom from eyeglasses after surgery, you might want to consider multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) to expand your range of clear vision.
In the past, the primary goal of cataract surgery was to restore a person's vision for driving, watching television, and other distance vision tasks.
Instead of using the same multifocal IOL in both eyes, your cataract surgeon might recommend using a different type of multifocal IOL in each eye, or maybe even a multifocal IOL in one eye and a standard monofocal IOL in the other eye. Each person has specific visual needs and concerns, and each type of IOL has its own set of benefits and limitations.
An experienced cataract surgeon can help you choose the best combination of lens implants to match your individual needs including helping you decide if mixing multifocal IOLs is a good option for you.
