Patients who undergo cataract surgery can have corrective intraocular lenses (IOLs) implanted to replace their damaged natural lenses. The most versatile IOLs are multifocal lenses. Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists in Leesburg, Eustis, and Clermont offers multifocal lenses to correct vision at different focal points and ranges. Because of this flexibility, you can dramatically reduce, and possibly even eliminate, your dependence on glasses. Depending on your needs, Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists also offers options for monofocal lenses and toric lenses.
Modern advances in eye care have given cataract patients more choices than ever before for restoring their vision with IOLs. Contact our eye care offices for more information on how we can best meet your individual vision restoration needs.
Why Choose Multifocal Lenses?
The availability of multifocal lenses offers patients a choice that was once unavailable. These artificial lenses are designed to improve vision at multiple distances and focal points, meaning both near and far vision are enhanced. The brain may need a period of time to adjust to these lenses, but after the initial adjustment period, many patients experience clear vision at multiple distances and are able to achieve independence from glasses and contact lenses.
Multifocal lenses work best for patients who have had both eyes corrected. Talk to your Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists doctor about which lens would best suit your needs.
Implanting Multifocal Lenses
Once the appropriate multifocal lenses have been selected, the next step is to undergo cataract surgery. The procedure itself is a short outpatient surgery. After local anesthetic is administered, a tiny incision is made in the eye. The cataract is removed and the multifocal lenses will be implanted through this same incision. Discomfort is minimal, and most patients report no pain. After a period of recovery, you will likely find you can perform most daily activities, from driving to reading, without glasses.
