Multifocal IOL Q & A

What is a multifocal IOL?

A multifocal intraocular lens (IOL) is an implantable medical device that replaces the natural lens of your eye. The Fry Eye Associates medical team implants IOLs during cataract surgery or to improve your vision when you have refractive errors.

Fry Eye Associates offers premium IOLs that provide you with clear vision following cataract surgery and correct existing vision issues. The type of IOL you receive depends on your vision needs and the goal of your procedure.

What IOLs are available?

The Fry Eye Associates team offers multifocal IOLs to correct presbyopia, an age-related refractive error that decreases your ability to see up-close. This type of lens can also improve your long-distance vision so that far away objects are more in focus.

Multifocal IOLs help improve your reading ability and reduce your need to wear glasses or contacts to see clearly up-close. Multifocal IOLs contain magnification elements in different parts of the lens to give you a good field of vision in all directions and distances.

When should I consider multifocal IOLs?

The team at Fry Eye Associates can determine if you’re the right candidate for multifocal IOLs after a comprehensive eye evaluation.

For many younger people who are developing cataracts — a clouding of your natural eye lens — multifocal IOLs are a good investment. This type of lens ensures you have good vision after your surgery at all distances, so you can decrease your dependence on prescription eyeglasses, over-the-counter reading glasses, or contact lenses to see clearly.

What can I expect during a multifocal IOL implant procedure?

The Fry Eye Associates eye surgeons use a unique incision technique to ensure your lens heals appropriately following your surgery. This incision allows your eye to heal immediately after your procedure. Your provider continues to monitor your healing process and your overall vision through routine eye exams.
