Multifocal Lens Implantation overview

In November 2006, Dr. Teye-Botchway performed the first multifocal lens Implantation in Bermuda. The multifocal lens is a revolutionary and technologically advanced intraocular lens.

Unlike other intraocular lenses which are monofocal, the multifocal lens allows patients the ability to see both near and far. This ability allows the patient to perform many activities and in most cases dependence on glasses is greatly reduced.

How does Multifocal Lens Implantation help you?

With bifocal eyeglasses, you look through the top part of the lens for distance, and through the bottom area of the lens for near. The multifocal lens implant is entirely different because the specially engineered optic provides both a distance focus, and a near focus at all times. Your brain will learn to automatically select the focus that is appropriate for the task at hand.

What conditions does Multifocal Lens Implantation address?

A multifocal IOL utilizes concentric rings giving multiple viewing areas. Much like a bifocal or trifocal pair of glasses, the multifocal IOL allows patients to see different distances through the different “rings” or areas of the lens.
