Multifocal IOL

How to select best lens for Cataract Surgery, जाने कौनसा लेंस बेहतर है Intraocular lens (IOL)

As we age, beginning around the age of 40, the natural lens inside the eye begins to harden and lose its flexibility. This reduces the eye’s ability to change its focus from near to intermediate, to distance, and back again. This is known as “loss of accommodation” or “presbyopia,” and its earliest symptom is difficulty seeing things up close. Bifocal and even trifocal glasses BEHome necessary for some people to see clearly at all distances.As the natural lens of the eye continues to deteriorate, it starts to become cloudy or brown. Vision becomes blurry, and colors lose their brilliance. At first, frequent changes in glasses prescriptions can help, but left untreated, cataracts can lead to blindness. The only way to see clearly after a cataract matures is to have it removed and then replaced with an intraocular lens, or IOL.

Until recently cataract patients received mono-focal lens implants that had only a single power. This meant you had a choice of correction for either far or near vision. If you suffer from presbyopia like many people over the age

50 this would mean that you still need glasses for either reading or for distance vision. Multifocal IOL’s have now been introduced with allow for freedom of glasses while undergoing cataract surgery. Multifocal IOLS accomplish t3his by incorporating several ‘rings’ that focus at different distances and accommodative lenses do so by moving within the eye. The multifocal IOL lens can increase your chances for a life free of dependence on glasses or contacts after cataract surgery for near, far, and intermediate vision. If you have worn glasses for a very long time this might be an opportunity for you to eliminate this hassle from your life.

With Monofocal IOL’s you get good distance vision but need glasses for near vision and reading. With multifocal IOL’s you get “BOTH” good distance and near vision

 Multifocal IOLS Lens

Traditional monofocal lenses, including lens implants, focus light to only one point in space. A multifocal lens has more than one point of focus. A bifocal, which is a type of multifocal, has two points of focus, one at distance and the other at near.

Multifocal IOLs are effective at improving near vision relative to monofocal IOLs although there is uncertainty as to the size of the effect. … Good unaided distance visual acuity (VA) is now a realistic expectation following cataract surgery and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation.

 Benefit of a Multifocal Lens

Multifocal lens implant focuses light from distance and near simultaneously. This feature addresses both distant and near vision and makes the recipient less dependent on glasses or contact lenses.

Advantages and Disadvantages of the Multifocal IOL

The multifocal lens implant provides excellent reading vision and very good distance vision. The intermediate vision is acceptable but some patients who do lots of computer work find they need to sit closer to the computer, make the font size larger on the screen, or get a pair of intermediate vision spectacles to make intermediate work more comfortable.

In addition, 25% of patients note glare and haloes around lights at night with the diffractive multifocal IOL, a feature that is inherent to multifocal lenses.

These effects may interfere with your ability to drive comfortably at night. However, most patients find that they get used to this phenomenon with time and the glare and haloes BEHome less obvious. Night driving spectacles may assist in reducing this phenomenon. You should know that approximately 7-8% of patients implanted with monofocal lenses also notice glare and halos.

Are There Any Alternatives To Multifocal Lenses?

He primary alternative to multifocal lens implantation is monofocal lens implantation. If you request a monofocal lens, you will have to decide whether you want distance vision lens implants in both eyes or whether you want a distance vision implant in one eye and a near vision implant in the other eye. This latter arrangement, called monovision, provides adequate distance and near vision and is best suited for patients who have tried monovision in contacts previously and like the effect

Risks Or Side Effects To Multifocal Lens 

Mplantation of a multifocal lens is associated with all the risks and side effects of cataract surgery. These will be explained separately by your doctor.
Will I see 20/20 after surgery?
We hope so, but we cant guarantee it. You are paying for the service and the implant, not a guaranteed result. If the eye is otherwise healthy, the vast majority of patients can achieve 20/20 vision with glasses, contact lenses or refractive surgery (e.g. LASIK, PRK, CK).

Frequently Ask Questions (FAQ)

If you opt to receive a monofocal lens implanted in both eyes for distance vision, you will definitely need reading glasses after surgery. If you receive a multifocal lens there is a good chance you wont need glasses. 80% of patients implanted with the diffractive and refractive lenses in their respective FDA clinical trials did not need glasses after surgery for distance or near vision. Of course, not every patient in the trial was spectacle independent. The odds of BEHoming free of spectacles are better if your corneal astigmatism is low and your eyes are healthy

No. … Patients with a history of corneal refractive surgery (CK, RK, PRK, LASIK, etc.) may require additional refractive surgery following implantation of a multifocal lens to optimize its performance

Multifocal IOLs are effective at improving near vision relative to monofocal IOLs although there is uncertainty as to the size of the effect. … Good unaided distance visual acuity (VA) is now a realistic expectation following cataract surgery and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation

While monofocal lenses are still considered standard for cataract surgery, many patients cannot help but consider multifocal lenses. Although these lenses have not been around nearly as long as monofocal lenses have, they still offer some unique advantages that are worth exploring.

In cataract surgery, the lens inside your eye that has become cloudy is removed and replaced with an artificial lens (called an intraocular lens, or IOL) to restore clear vision. The procedure typically is performed on an outpatient basis and does not require an overnight stay in a hospital or other care facility.
