When cataract surgery is performed, an intraocular lens implant is placed allowing a patient to see following surgery. Cataract surgery can be performed both with a manual technique or a new laser technique. The new laser technique usually makes the surgery faster, safer, and more precise. Conventional monofocal lenses usually provide good vision only at a distance with limited ability to see objects that are near without glasses.
New, Trifocal lenses (PanOptix), and Multifocal Intraocular Lenses (Restor, Synergy, Tecnis etc.) provide quality vision at all distances – near (reading), intermediate (computer use or cooking), and far (driving). (EDOF) extended depth of focus lenses, (Vivity, Syfmony etc.) provide quality vision at intermediate (computer use or cooking) and far (driving) distances.
Up to 80% of patients who choose these new lenses are spectacle free and able to do all of their daily activities without glasses. There are also Toric Intraocular lenses to correct patients who have astigmatism.
