The 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.
The 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.
