The Tecnis® Multi-Focal IOL is a premium intraocular lens that is specifically designed to offer both distance and near vision. This lens is typically implanted at the time of cataract removal. It is also sometimes used during an elective “refractive lens exchange” procedure when better distance and/or near vision is desired. The goal in choosing the Tecnis® Multi-Focal IOL is to achieve less dependence on glasses or contact lenses.
The Tecnis® Multi-Focal IOL brings objects at varying distances into focus using a technology called diffraction. A series of rings on the entire inner surface of the Tecnis® Multi-Focal IOL focuses the light from objects in our vision at varying distances. This allows for a smooth transition of focus between distant, intermediate and near targets. This lens is a good option for patients who do not like the concept of monovision (one eye focused for distance and the other for near) and who want to reduce the likelihood of needing distance, reading or computer glasses after surgery. Multifocal lenses are more likely than monofocal or toric lenses to produce glare around headlights/streetlights at night; however, most patients (95%) rate the glare as either mild or medium.
