The Tecnis Multifocal intraocular lens is the first intraocular lens based on the wavefront data that makes modern LASIK procedures more accurate than ever before. The Tecnis Multifocal intraocular lens is designed to give good vision for distance, intermediate, and up-close. Tecnis describes this as giving "improved functional vision." In clinical studies Tecnis has also been shown to give you better vision for driving in low-light situations compared to monofocal lenses.
During cataract surgery the cloudy natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial intraocular lens that is clear. In the past, the replacement lens was a monofocal lens, which gave good distance vision, but required reading glasses for working up close. Now, though, there are several advanced intraocular lenses that allow good vision at all distances for our Monmouth and Ocean County, New Jersey cataract patients.
Previously, we have offered Crystalens and ReSTOR and are now happy to offer the Tecnis Multifocal Lens.
The advanced Tecnis Multifocal Lens is an implantable lens that significantly improves vision after cataract surgery and corrects presbyopia. In a recent clinical study, over 94% of study patients said they would choose the Tecnis Multifocal Lens again. (Per Tecnis Multifocal Foldable Acrylic Intraocular Lens package insert.

It's a lens that offers patients with age-related vision loss an excellent chance to regain youthful vision and become free of glasses.
Regain the Vision You Had in Your 20s
If cataracts and presbyopia are affecting your quality of life, now is the time to talk to your eye physician about your treatment options. Although many people over the age of 60 experience some level of blurry vision due to cataracts, and people over 50 tend to lose the ability to read up close without glasses because of presbyopia, the Tecnis® Multifocal Lens now makes it possible to regain the vision you had in your 20s.
