Multifocal Near Vision Presbyopia Correcting Lens Implants provide excellent vision after Cataract Surgery at the full range of distances- far or distance vision, arms length or intermediate vision and up close near vision. Depending on your specific vision requirements, there are several types of presbyopia correcting multifocal lens implants the Center for Sight Cataract Surgeons might suggest, including Crystalens® Accommodating Lens Implant, the AcrySof® ReSTOR® Multifocal Lens Implant and the Tecnis® Multifocal Lens Implant. Each of these lens implants or Intraocular Lenses (IOL) works in a different way to help you achieve your vision correction goals of being able to see at a variety of distances after cataract surgery-without being dependent on eyeglasses. Presbyopia correcting multifocal lens implants correct both your distance vision and your presbyopia after cataract surgery. For the vast majority of patients, having a multifocal lens implant means that you will be able to see at distance and up close without being dependent on eyeglasses.
So, patients choosing to have a presbyopia correcting multifocal lens implant will likely find that they can drive, watch television, play golf and keep score, read a menu, play cards or do crafts-without the need for glasses. Patients choosing multifocal lens implants typically experience a greater overall freedom from glasses allowing them to participate in most everyday activities without dependence on, or the hassle of glasses.
As with any surgical procedure, there are always risks as well as benefits. During your eye examination and cataract consultation, we will perform a cataract examination and then arrange the scheduling of your cataract surgery. In addition, we will spend the time necessary to review the everyday activities that are most important to you-and whether being independent of glasses for those activities is something that you would like to achieve. As you prepare for your visit to Center for Sight for your examination it will be helpful if you begin thinking about what those activities are so that you can discuss them and explore them with our staff.
If you decide to have a presbyopia correcting multifocal lens implant, our staff will make sure to review your questions and fully explain any additional fees related to the multifocal lens implant that you might be responsible for. Medicare and most insurance cover the surgical facility fee for cataract surgery and the surgical fee for cataract surgery-but not the cost of the presbyopia correcting multifocal lens and its implantation. In most cases, Medicare or the insurance provider asks Center for Sight to bill you for the additional cost of the necessary testing, the multifocal lens itself and its implantation. Our staff will be pleased to review any costs as well arrange easy affordable monthly payments to fit your budget, should you decide that a multifocal lens is your best choice.
