Multifocal or accommodating intraocular lens
Acry Sof IQ Re STOR multifocal IOLs, marketed by Alcon, have been approved for use in the U. This optimizes image quality in all lighting conditions, according to Alcon.
This reduces halos around lights at night and improves image quality for enhanced visual clarity, the company says.
These advanced presbyopia-correcting IOLs are in many ways similar to bifocal and multifocal contact lenses.
And because multifocal IOLs are implanted inside the eye, they don't require any care and routine replacement like contact lenses do.
Still another option is to use monofocal IOLs in such a way to provide a monovision correction with cataract surgery, similar to monovision with contact lenses.
Your eye doctor and/or cataract surgeon can discuss the pros and cons of each of these options during your preoperative exam and cataract surgery consultation.Disclaimer: Each patient has unique visual characteristics and requires the consultation of a qualified eye surgeon before determining what treatment modality is best.
