Visit Our Cataract Center

Cataract patients now have the option to have their vision corrected to allow them to see at both near and far distances after cataract surgery! These lens implants provide significantly reduced dependence on glasses for all tasks of daily living, providing a range of focus that laser vision correction cannot achieve. Individuals with visual impairment suffering from cataracts previously had only a mono-focal lens implant option after surgery.

Tecnis Multi-focal


The Tecnis® Multi-Focal IOL is a premium lifetsyle intraocular lens that is specifically designed to offer both distance and near vision. This lens is typically implanted at the time of cataract removal. It is also sometimes used during an elective refractive lens exchange procedure. The goal in choosing the Tecnis® Multi-Focal IOL is to achieve less dependence on glasses or contact lenses.

The Tecnis® Multi-Focal IOL brings objects at varying distances into focus using a technology called diffraction. A series of rings on the entire inner surface of the Tecnis® Multi-Focal IOL focuses the light from objects in our vision at varying distances. This allows for a smooth transition of focus between distant, intermediate and near targets.

If you are interested in vision correction surgery but have been told you are not an ideal patient for LASIK, the Tecnis® Multi-Focal IOL might be a good option for you. Individuals over the age of 50 are typically the best candidates for refractive lens exchange with the Tecnis® Multi-Focal IOL. If you have both distance and reading issues or you require bifocals, this might be a better complete vision solution than the much-respected laser vision correction procedure.

The clinical studies supporting the FDA approval of the Tecnis® Multi-Focal IOL indicate that:

  • After surgery nearly 9 out of 10 patients did not require glasses for any activity. 93.8% of bilaterally implanted patients stated that they functioned comfortably without glasses at all distances—near, intermediate, and far—at 1 year. 88% of bilaterally implanted patients reported never wearing glasses.
  • Most patients achieved excellent image quality at all distances, under any lighting condition.
  • Over 94% of study patients would choose Tecnis® Multi-Focal IOL again.

If you would like to know more about the Tecnis® Multi-Focal IOL we encourage you to contact the Advanced Vision Institute to schedule a consultation.
