Multifocal Lenses: Clear Vision at All Distances
For some patients, the need for cataract surgery can actually be a stroke of good luck because it can mean a reduced dependence on eyeglasses after surgery. Of course, not all cataract patients enjoy clear vision at all distances, but those who choose multifocal Intraocular Lenses (IOLs) may end up with better vision than they’ve had in years.
At Eye Associates of Tucson we offer these types of Lifestyle Lenses to replace the cloudy lens that is removed during cataract surgery. Rather than just providing clear distance vision like monofocal lenses do, multifocal IOLs also correct presbyopia (the need for reading glasses to see things up close).
Permanently implanted into the eye, these prescription lenses focus light from different distances simultaneously to allow for clear vision at all distances. As a result, multifocal Lifestyle lenses can reduce or completely eliminate your need for reading glasses or bifocals after cataract surgery in Tucson.

During a consultation with your Tucson cataract doctor, you can discuss your vision goals, find out if a multifocal IOL might help you achieve those goals and determine the cost of multifocal IOLs. After an evaluation of your lifestyle and goals, we can determine if you might be a good candidate for this type of Lifestyle Lens. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.
