If you are living with cataracts and are looking for a way to improve your vision, Tecnis multifocal intraocular lenses can help! These are a type of lens that is used during cataract surgery to help make your vision clearer. Our team of physicians has the skill to properly perform these cataract procedures to help improve your overall quality of life.
The Tecnis Multifocal lens technology is created to provide a full range of vision including distance, near, and intermediate, following cataract treatment. This lens not only treats cataracts but can also eliminate your need for glasses or contacts during everyday activities.
The cataract surgery procedure is usually an outpatient one and takes less than one hour to perform. First, eyedrops will be placed into the eye to dilate the pupil. Local anesthetics will then be given to help numb the area, as well as a sedative to help you relax during the procedure. Next, the natural lens of the eye is removed, and a Tecnis multifocal lens is inserted in its place.
Following the procedure, your vision will begin to improve over the next couple of days. Blurriness may occur at first, but will dissipate as your eye heals. Mild itching and discomfort may also temporarily occur. You may be asked to wear an eye patch for a few days following surgery to protect your eye, and eyedrops may be prescribed to help prevent infection and reduce inflammation. Complete healing usually occurs within eight weeks.
If you have been diagnosed with cataracts and wish to have a full range of vision without glasses, the Tecnis Multifocal lens may be for you. Patients should not receive this lens if they have experienced any previous trauma to the eye or have glaucoma. The best way to determine if Tecnis multifocal lenses are right for you is to schedule a consultation appointment with one of our eye care specialists. During this appointment, you will be able to discuss your symptoms and desired results with the doctor so that a treatment plan can be created for you.
