Have you ever sat down at a restaurant and had to borrow someone else’s reading glasses to decipher the menu? If you’re over the age of 40, chances are you have. But the good news is that we can actually help prevent such a hiccup so you can focus more on enjoying the moment and less on your reading glasses.
Did you know – you now have the opportunity to CHOOSE what your vision will be like following cataract surgery. If you are a candidate for specific advanced technology lenses, you now have the option to rely less on reading glasses throughout your day. What does this mean to you? It means you’ll be able to complete near-to-far tasks with ease, without having to rely on your glasses as much for correction. So when you’re out shopping, you can read price tags, glance at your cell phone, maybe even check the time on your watch – and still be able to easily scan the store to look for your shopping partner who just wandered off into another department.
The multifocal lens is designed to enhance a full range of vision (near, far, and in-between). When Laser Custom Cataract Surgery is used in combination with these lenses it improves centration of lens allowing the patient to experience the best visual outcome.
Your surgeon will carefully evaluate the visual demands of your individual lifestyle before recommending a particular lens. If you have astigmatism, your surgeon may recommend a specific lens designed to correct that condition. There are circumstances where another lens option may be more beneficial for a particular patient.
