The Tecnis Multifocal IOLhas been approved for use in the U.S. since 2009. This lens is not only accomodating to near and far vision after surgery, but it actually can correct an astigmatism as well.
The surface of the Tecnis Multifocal IOL provides advanced image quality at all distances, under any lighting conditions, and regardless of pupil size. These IOLs are manufactured using a proprietary process that uses precisely shaped diamond tools to cut into the lens; controlled temperatures are used for ultimate precision. This process contributes to the consistent, high-quality performance of the Tecnis IOL. Nearly 9 out of 10 people who have had Tecnis Multifocal IOLs implanted in their eyes enjoy complete freedom from eyeglasses after cataract surgery.
