As we age, our vision can seem to fail. We need more light, we hold things further away, nighttime glare or the inability to focus up close may cause us to give up driving or favorite hobbies. Many think this is simply an unfortunate part of aging. However, multi-vision lens implants have allowed people to turn back time, truly and permanently.
The PanOptix lens uses a proprietary design that optimizes intermediate vision without compromising near and distance vision. By maximizing the light that reaches the retina, it reduces light scatter and the side effects caused by this older technology. In addition, the lens power is set at a intermediate focal point which is well suited to those requiring great vision for computer use, phones and reading.
The Vivity lens is a continuous-range-of-focus lens that provides more natural vision through its novel optical technology. Called X-Wave, this technology achieves smoother vision transitions by stretching and shifting light as it enters the eye, rather than splitting light as other lens implants do. Optimization of all available light improves vision quality, resulting in excellent distance vision, sharp intermediate vision, and good quality near vision.
The TECNIS multifocal lens uses concentric zones to create fuller-range vision. Manufactured by Advanced Medical Optics, the Tecnis lens offers patients high-quality day or night fuller-range vision. Its unique design gives patients superior near vision and rapid reading speed.
TECNIS Symfony uses the same materials and overall design as the TECNIS multifocal IOL, but provides an extended depth of focus (EDOF) when implanted in both eyes. The Symfony also has astigmatism correction directly engineered into the lens, allowing an unparalleled level of vision clarity and crispness at mid-range through distance.
PanOptix, Vivity, Tecnis and Symfony Multifocal IOLs are proven to improve near, intermediate and distance vision in FDA clinical trials. They each provide excellent vision quality to those weighing the importance of multiple focus points without glasses in daily life.
