The information that follows is designed to give you a better understanding of Cataract Eye Surgery so you can decide if this procedure is right for you or a loved one.
A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision. Most cataracts are related to aging and are very common in older people. By age 80, more than half of all Americans will either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. A cataract can occur in either one or both eyes, however it cannot spread from one eye to the other.
For many people, cataracts are just part of the aging process. However, cataracts can also be caused by an injury to the eye, disease, or even long-term exposure to sunlight.
For more than 30 years, doctors have treated cataracts by replacing them with Intraocular Lenses, that only allowed you to focus clearly at one distance and patients would have to accept using glasses to correct problems with seeing things up close. Recently, however, IOLs have made tremendous advances in technology and you now have the option to see clearly both from a distance and up close. What follows is a list of multi-focal IOL options we have provided and links to their manufacturers web sites, so you may learn more about your options prior to surgery. As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to phone our office and speak with one of our knowledgeable staff.

This lens is the latest multifocal lens. Like other multifocal lenses, it greatly reduces the need for glasses after cataract surgery. In U.S. clinical trials, 86% of patients never used glasses. It provides good vision for distance, near, and everything in between. With all multifocal lenses, there is a chance that patients will see rings or halos around lights at night. This phenomenon occurs less frequently with this lens. www.tecnismultifocal.com
