Multifocal intraocular lens implants, or IOLs, are a wonderful vision correction option available for Skokie, IL area patients. Multifocal IOLs are a wonderful way of expanding your current range of vision with few possible complications. Patients who are undergoing cataract surgery or eye correction procedures can have one of these artificial lenses put in place. In the past, corrective lenses were only available for those who did not have bifocal or multifocal eyeglasses. This eliminated a wide range of patients who might otherwise consider corrective surgery. With continued advances in vision care, patients who wear multifocal eyeglasses can now eliminate the need to wear them by placing multifocal IOLs.
WHAT LENSES ARE AVAILABLE FOR PATIENTS TO CONSIDER?
Dr. Stuart P. Sondheimer has a few different brands for patients to consider when thinking about the placement of multifocal IOLs. The following ones are available:
- Alcon PanOptix
- AMO Symfony IOL
- Tecnis Multifocal
- Alco ReSTOR multifocal IOL
WHY ARE MULTIFOCAL IOLS BENEFICIAL FOR PATIENTS?
Multifocal IOLs are extremely popular because they are considerably different from more traditional monofocal IOLs. These IOLs are used to correct all vision variances. This can eliminate the need for glasses, even reading glasses, in most patients. The lens provides clear vision at any distance, and can be used for patients who are nearsighted or farsighted, or a combination of the two. The multifocal IOL works much like a permanent contact lens, which is implanted into one or both eyes and provides corrected vision for the individual.
HOW MUCH WILL MULTIFOCAL IOLS COST?
The overall cost of treatment varies from patient to patient, depending on the surgical procedure being performed, the type of lens being implanted, if one or both eyes require correction, and if the patient has vision insurance. The best way to get an accurate cost of treatment is to request a consultation appointment with Dr. Stuart P. Sondheimer.
