Intralase Laser Eye Surgery

The IntraLase Method is a 100% blade-free technique used to perform the critical first step in the LASIK procedure: creating the corneal flap. The creation of the corneal flap prepares the eye for the second step of the LASIK procedure where an excimer laser is used on the inner cornea to correct vision.

Crystalens - IOL Implants

The Crystalens® accommodating intraocular lens is an intraocular lens used after cataract surgery or as a lens alternative in presbyopic lens exchanges. This intraocular lens was engineered with a hinge design to allow the optic, or the part of the lens that you see through, to move back and forth as your focus on an image changes. The Crystalens® accommodative intraocular lens is permanently implanted during surgery and functions in a similar fashion as the natural lens of the eye. Once the surgery has been completed your eyes can focus on far or near objects in a comfortable way with no discomfort. If you are experiencing presbyopia or cataracts please feel free to consult us about the possibility of utilizing the new Crystalens® accommodative intraocular lens to rejuvenate your eyes.

Tecnis Multifocal IOL



Tecnis IOLThe TECNIS® Multifocal IOL is an exciting new alternative for patients in the United States with cataracts and those presbyopic individuals (people who need glasses for reading) who desire independence from glasses or contact lenses. The Tecnis multifocal showed the highest number of subjects who never wear glasses ever reported in an FDA monitored investigation.

Tecnis IOLThe TECNIS® Multifocal IOL is designed to have roughly an equal amount of light-focusing ability for distance vision and near vision. It has an aspheric front surface and a diffractive multifocal surface on the backside of the lens. The diffractive surface consists of many concentric rings of very fine ridges that create focusing zones that bend light differently to provide a multifocal correction.

TECNIS® was designed to help you regain younger vision and be free of glasses, the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens can provide you with high-quality vision at all distances and in all lighting conditions—even when reading in dim light.

The TECNIS® Multifocal Lens allows you to lead an active lifestyle. If you enjoy activities such as reading, boating, quilting, playing golf, sightseeing, or surfing the Internet, TECNIS® Multifocal can help you.

  • Excellent vision for all distances—near, far, and everything in between
  • Over 94% of patients would choose the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens again, according to a recent clinical study.1

TECNIS® Multifocal FAQs

Q. Is the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens procedure safe?

A. Every surgical procedure has risks and potential side effects. We will explain these in full detail. However, the lens removal and lens implant technique used in the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens procedure is performed over 15 million times per year worldwide3 and is recognized for its safety and predictability.

Q. How long will it be before I see well?

A. 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 goes away over a period of weeks or months.

Q. Will I be totally free from glasses?

A. Many people with the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens experience the best eyesight they’ve had in years. In fact, nearly 9 out of 10 people do not require glasses after receiving a TECNIS® Multifocal implantable lens.1

Q. Am I a candidate for the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens?

A. If you’ve been diagnosed with cataracts, you may be a candidate for the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens. Whether the TECNIS® Multifocal 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.

Q. How is the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens different from traditional monofocal IOLs?

A. The TECNIS® Multifocal Lens is a multifocal intraocular lens. Unlike traditional monofocal (single-vision) lens implants, the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens provides quality vision at all distances – near (reading), intermediate (computer use or cooking), and far (driving). Traditional monofocal lenses usually provide good vision only at a distance with limited ability to see objects that are near without glasses.

Q. How does the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens replace the cataract?

A. The natural lens inside the eye is gently removed through a tiny incision in the periphery of your eye’s cornea. The cataract-impaired lens is then removed through this incision and the lens implant is inserted in its place to permanently replace it. The procedure usually takes about 15 to 45 minutes and vision is usually improved immediately.

The advanced TECNIS® Multifocal is an implantable lens that significantly improves vision after cataract surgery and corrects the inability to see up close called presbyopia.
