Regain High-Quality Vision at Any Distance After Cataract Surgery with the Tecnis® Multifocal IOL

The buildup and accumulation of proteins in your eye’s natural lens is called a cataract. Cataracts compromise your ability to see clearly with age as they continue to cloud over, harden, and reduce focused light to your retina resulting in duller colors, vision blur, and eventually complete blindness. Laser cataract surgery replaces this clouded natural lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) to restore your high-quality vision.

At LaserVue Eye Center, we offer our Bay Area patients the chance to go beyond a basic lens replacement with a Premium Lifestyle Lens that not only restores your vision, but also relieves presbyopia, an age-related farsightedness that affects everyone. The Tecnis Multifocal IOL provides patients with high-quality vision at near, intermediate, and far distances with little to no need for corrective eyewear.

The Tecnis® Multifocal Intraocular Lens Diffractive Design

The Tecnis Multifocal IOL

The Tecnis Multifocal IOL uses an aspheric design with a diffractive lens to create multiple focal points that match various distances from near to far. The proprietary design is not dependent on pupil size and is engineered to reduce spherical aberrations such as a halo effect surrounding lights. The brain quickly adapts to these new focal points and enhances the clarity of your vision even under low lighting conditions so you can clearly see no matter the time of day or view distance.

The Benefits of Tecnis® Multifocal Intraocular Lens

Standard monofocal IOLs provide clear vision at a single point for easy distance vision but still require reading glasses to view anything up close clearly. Our LaserVue Eye Center ophthalmologists can enhance your post-cataract vision with the presbyopia-correcting Tecnis Multifocal IOL for clear near vision without the need for glasses.

Enhance your Visions at Any Distance with Tecnis® Multifocal IOLs 

Tecnis Multifocal IOLs are offered in three lens powers that provide great distance vision and customized clarity strength at distinct near distances. 

  1. TECNIS Multifocal +4.0D: Near-distance reading, such as reading a book
  2. TECNIS Multifocal +3.25D: Longer-distance reading, such as using a phone or tablet
  3. TECNIS Multifocal +2.75D: Intermediate-distance vision, such as labels on a grocery store shelf

These options give the wearer the freedom to enhance the vision based on  their lifestyle while enjoying comprehensively better eyesight. No matter the choice, the improvements to your near and distance vision will be clear from the start. 

Maintain Great Vision in Low Lighting with Tecnis® Multifocal IOLs

Seeing in dim light is a problem with cataracts, but the Tecnis Multifocal IOL maintains clear vision in low lighting conditions. Patients experienced a large improvement to their nighttime driving ability and reading in dim locations such as the menu at a restaurant. The Tecnis Multifocal IOL also improves the harsh transition from bright conditions into a darker setting with quick eye adjustments.

Tecnis® Multifocal IOLs Enhance an Active Lifestyle

About 9 out of 10 people who use the Tecnis Multifocal IOL comfortably function without glasses at any distance to allow for a more active lifestyle. Now seeing  the golf ball from tee-off or  reading a small printed baking recipe is easier without burdensome reading glasses slowing you down. Get the enjoyment back in everyday tasks with the Tecnis Multifocal IOLs.

The Tecnis® Multifocal IOL Protects Your Eyes

The Tecnis Multifocal IOLis made out of hydrophobic acrylic material which also includes UV-blocking capabilities to protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet light. The long-lasting protection will keep your eyes healthy long after your laser cataract surgery is complete.
