What are Multifocal IOLs?
As we age, our vision will naturally deteriorate, and can eventually lead to significant cataracts for some. Multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) are a form of prosthetic lens that is used in cataract surgery. Many people who wish to have freedom from eyeglasses following cataract surgery choose these lenses to expand their range of clear vision.
How do Multifocal IOLs Work?
These lenses contain a second form of optical correction called diffraction to expand a patient’s range of vision, so they can clearly see objects at all distances without contacts or eyeglasses. They are specifically created to work in a way that you can pick whether to focus on an object nearby or further away. With these lenses, many people report an improved quality of life, since they can now see clearly during everyday tasks without glasses for distance near and far.
How are Multifocal IOLs Implanted?
When implanting multifocal IOLs, the natural lens of the eye is removed, and a clear lens is inserted in its place. Many people choose to have these lenses implanted because they are a natural, safe, and effective way to correct vision for all distance fields.
Following this procedure, patients may experience temporary blurriness for the first week. After this time, quality natural outdoor and indoor vision should be restored. Results from this surgery are permanent.

The ideal candidate for multifocal IOLs is someone who has been diagnosed with cataracts and does not wish to wear reading glasses or contact lenses.
