Lens replacement allows a choice of visual outcomes. The wide variety of lens implant types allow for a tailored approach to visual correction.
IOL types include the following. The visual outcomes detailed are target outcomes, not guarantees. There is a possibility that glasses may still be required to achieve best vision, whatever the type of IOL that is used.
You will see in the distance but uses glasses for middle and near.
You will see in the distance and have some functional middle distance vision, but will require glasses for finer middle distance vision and for near.
Multifocal / Trifocal
You will see clearly in the distance, middle and near.
Multifocal – Extended Depth Of Focus (EDOF)
Lenses that combine multifocal and EDOF technology add to the range of multifocal lens options.
Alternatives to lens replacement include:
- Laser correction with both eyes corrected for distance
- Laser correction with both eyes corrected for monovision
- Laser correction with both eyes corrected with a multifocal corneal ablation
