Until recently, patients having cataract surgery received a monofocal, or single focus intraocular lens implant (IOL). These single focus IOLs are designed to provide excellent distance vision, but most patients will need prescription glasses for near and intermediate vision.

Abbott Medical Optics, AMO has continued to be the leader in multifocal lens technology, and now offers patients an FDA approved IOL that is designed to provide a broader, less restricted range of vision with little or no dependence on corrective eyewear.

It is called the Tecnis Multifocal IOL, and nearly 9 out of 10 patients who receive a Tecnis multifocal lens report never wearing glasses after the procedure, the highest level of glasses independence for any IOL.

The Tecnis multifocal IOL is designed with several focal points within the lens, allowing patients to see well at several distances. Another advantage of the Tecnis multifocal IOL is its unique aspheric design. Using a wavefront analysis of your visual axis, this design is intended to eliminate any ‘high order aberrations’ responsible for glare and halos and poor vision quality in low light.

The Tecnis IOL is also that approved by the FDA to correct presbyopia, or the need for reading glasses. Its unique design has shown to give patients superior near vision and exceptional reading speed clarity when compared to other presbyopia-correcting IOLs in the marketplace.

The Tecnis Multifocal IOL is the latest in lens technology and has quickly become the IOL of choice for surgeons worldwide. That also explains why over 94% of patients who receive the Tecnis Multifocal IOL procedure say would choose this lens option again – the highest approval rating for any IOL.
