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.
- The AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL incorporates an apodized diffractive optic with refraction to achieve a range of quality vision
- High quality uncorrected near and distance vision with 20/40 or better intermediate vision without movement of the IOL
- 80% Overall Spectacle Freedom
- Nearly 94% of patients would have the lens again
- Overall Spectacle Freedom
- AcrySof® Toric IOL Significantly Improves Distance Vision Spectacle Freedom
At a glance
Allows patients to see different distances through the different “rings” or areas of the lens.
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.
