Multifocal Lens

What is a Multifocal Lens?

In traditional cataract surgery, the natural lens is removed and an artificial, monofocal lens is implanted. A mono-focal lens is designed to help you see clearly at a singular focal point, whether it be near, intermediate, or distant.

A multifocal lens is a lifestyle or presbyopia-correcting lens. Its goal is to reduce your dependence on glasses and/or contacts following cataract surgery by giving you clear near-, intermediate-, and distance vision.

Who is a Good Candidate for the Multifocal Lens?

If you are motivated to reduce your reliance on glasses and/or contacts after cataract surgery, the multifocal lens is a good option for you.

While the multifocal lens offers a great range of vision, we still recommend the use of glasses for activities such as prolonged reading of fine print, such as reading a book, or for nighttime driving.

Given the construction of the multifocal lens, some patients may experience glare and halos following surgery, especially with nighttime driving.
