When it comes time to take the plunge and get corrective eye surgery, there are a few options you should consider. LASIK or PRK might be the best options for you if you have healthy, normal eyes, but if you have cataracts, you may want to look at multifocal lens implants to give you the most freedom from wearing glasses after your surgery.
Many of us consider surgery to correct our vision because we’re sick of contacts, tired of breaking our glasses, or our eyes can’t be corrected with glasses. Cataracts, for example, cause cloudy, hazy or blurry vision that can’t be corrected with a new pair of glasses. Replacing the lenses in your eyes can give you clearer vision that you didn’t even know you were missing.
While you used to have to choose a lens for close vision or distance vision, that left people still needing glasses. But why choose to wear readers or glasses for distance vision when we can offer a multifocal lense that gives you the best of both worlds?
What is the procedure like?
There is no difference between the normal cataract procedure and a cataract procedure that features multifocal lenses. The lens is the only difference! We remove the cloudy lens and replace it with the lens you choose. We can replace the clouded lens with a multifocal lens to give you vision that adjusts to whatever you want to see! Imagine not needing glasses on a daily basis.
How will my brain adjust?
Your brain is a powerful tool. We can adjust to a lot of different things when it comes to our bodies. Interestingly, our eyes are able to adjust extremely well to multifocal implants. Look at it like this: we are able to adjust to many different pieces of stimuli every day. We can sit in a restaurant with music and focus on the person sitting across from us and what they’re saying. Multifocal lenses don’t lock in your vision, in fact. Your brain can use the lens however it chooses. Just as we can decide what to listen to, our brain can adjust to which distance it needs to tune into. Multifocal lenses are not the best option for everyone. We can determine what will best improve your vision after performing a comprehensive eye examination and discussing your particular visual needs and your desires.
