If you have a strong desire for greater independence from glasses or contacts, then a multifocal implant may be right for you. These lenses offer a wider range of vision than traditional implants and studies show that up to 80% of patients no longer use any form of optical correction after having this procedure. Each lens has a unique design, with certain advantages for distance, near and intermediate vision tasks. This translates into greater freedom and independence for you at work, home or wherever your hobbies and interests lead you.

ReSTOR Multifocal IOL
The AcrySof ReSTOR implant provides excellent distance and near vision. It is perfect for those desiring maximum close vision for reading and detailed near work. Clinical studies have shown that 86% of patients with the ReSTOR lens were spectacle free and 94% of patients said they would have the lens again. The advantages of ReSTOR are highest degree of spectacle freedom and reduction in use of reading glasses.
Acrysof Toric IOL
This lens is not multifocal in nature, however it is uniquely designed to correct a wide range of astigmatism. It can provide a higher quality of vision than a conventional lens in astigmatism patients and will reduce, but not eliminate the need for some glasses use.
Patients often choose to have one eye set for best distance vision and the other eye for best near vision. This “monovision” format is an excellent choice to reduce glasses dependency.
