PREMIUM LENSESTecnis® Multifocal lens

If you enjoy reading the newspaper, playing tennis, knitting, searching the internet, or other activities that require vision at various distances, the Tecnis® Multifocal lens will enable you to live the active lifestyle you want.

Multifocal lenses are just one type of implantable lens that can be placed during cataract removal surgery. The Tecnis® Multifocal lens is one the most exciting new premium lens implants in the multifocal lens category. Cataract patients are often excited about this lens implant because it can correct vision at near, far and intermediate distances after cataract surgery has been completed. The Tecnis™ Multifocal lens enables cataract patients to see objects that are up close as well as those that are far away, without the need for contacts or eyeglasses. Traditional monofocal lens implants after cataract surgery only give you the option for vision at one distance so the use of glasses is required.

Other benefits of the Tecnis® Multifocal lens include its abilities to minimize glare and improve low-light and nighttime vision. Improved vision is often noticed the day after the procedure but can sometimes be noticed immediately after treatment.
