What is the Tecnis IOL?
The Tecnis Multifocal premium IOL is used in patients with and without presbyopia who desire increased independence from glasses following cataract surgery. The Tecnis Multifocal lens is designed with patented optics to provide a range of high quality vision in even low light situations. With the Tecnis Multifocal, patients enjoy everyday activities such as reading a menu in a dimly lit restaurant, operating your phone and even driving at night.
How Does The Tecnis Multifocal IOL Work?
Although most people over the age of 60 experience some level of blurry vision due to cataracts, and almost everyone over 50 loses their ability to read comfortably without glasses due to presbyopia, the Tecnis Multifocal IOL now makes it possible to regain performance more like that of your younger eyes.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the Tecnis Multifocal lens procedure safe?
Every surgical procedure has risks and potential side effects. Your surgeon will explain all of these in full detail during your visit. However, the lens removal and lens implant technique used in the Tecnis procedure is performed over 15 million times per year worldwide and is recognized for its safety and predictability.
How long will it be before I see well?
Everyone heals at a different rate, but in most cases, you will notice improved vision almost immediately after your procedure. You may, however, have an adjustment period where you see some glare or halos around bright lights. In most cases, this can last a period of weeks or months.
Will I be totally free from glasses?
Many people with the Tecnis lens experience the best eyesight they have had in years. In fact, nearly 9 out of 10 people do not require glasses after receiving a Tecnis Multifocal IOL.
Am I a candidate for the Tecnis Multifocal lens?
If you have been diagnosed with cataracts, you may be a candidate for the Tecnis Multifocal IOL. Whether the Tecnis lens is the right choice for you depends on your personal preferences, lifestyle, and the overall health of your eyes. Your doctor will make a recommendation following a complete eye exam.
