TECNIS® Multifocal IOL

An evolution of the ReZoom™ Lens Implant

The TECNIS Multifocal IOL is a premium multifocal lens implant that provides for vision at all distances: far, intermediate and near. The TECNIS Multifocal IOL is an evolution of the popular ReZoom™ IOL. Like other presbyopia-correcting lenses such as the ReSTOR® IOL and Crystalens AO™ IOL, the TECNIS Multifocal IOL is an optional lens implant that can be inserted during cataract surgery and is designed to give the recipient independence from glasses for the majority of tasks.

DID YOU KNOW?

The TECNIS Multifocal IOL allows for a complete range of vision by splitting light entering the eye into several focus points, giving it a “multi-focal” function.

A Premium Multifocal IOL

Similar to the ReSTOR®, the TECNIS Multifocal IOL allows for a complete range of vision by splitting light that enters the eye into several focus points, giving it a “multi-focal” function. There is an adaptation period for multifocal IOLs when your brain trains itself on which image to process.

If you wish to focus on close objects, the near focal point image that the TECNIS Multifocal projects onto the retina is accepted by the brain. For far away objects, the distant focal point image is accepted.

TECNIS Multifocal IOL and Medicare

Recent Medicare changes now qualify a portion of the TECNIS Multifocal procedure for cataract coverage. This leaves a residual out of pocket cost that you would pay for the near vision correction features of the TECNIS Multifocal. Ocala Eye features payment plans that make the TECNIS Multifocal a viable choice for your lens replacement surgery. In addition, you will receive an entire year of follow-up care which includes vision enhancement such as LASIK or CK® if deemed necessary by your Ocala Eye ophthalmologist to fine tune your vision.

Cataract Options – Which One is Right For Me?

Cataract surgery is one of the most common surgical procedures in the United States. This certainly holds true with the Ocala Eye Surgery Center where we perform thousands of these operations every year. While the majority of cataract surgery patients who opt for standard monofocal (fixed-distance) intraocular lens implants (IOLs) can see distant objects very clearly after their procedure, this usually means a new glasses prescription is needed for seeing near objects. The TECNIS Multifocal, Crystalens AO™ and ReSTOR® were designed with a specific patient in mind – one may be a better choice for you than the other when you and your ophthalmologist consider lifestyle, medical history, and your individual eye physiology.

Getting Started

Contact us to make an appointment and one of our board-certified ophthalmologists will determine if you are a candidate for TECNIS Multifocal lens implants. At our Ocala, Florida eye care offices, we carefully evaluate each patient, performing a thorough eye examination and reviewing medical history to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure. The actual surgery for TECNIS Multifocal lens implants is performed as an outpatient procedure at our Ocala, Florida surgery center and the actual operation takes less than 30 minutes.

Your surgeon will provide you with specific instructions to follow after you receive your TECNIS Multifocal lens implants. Patients who already have intraocular lens implants from previous cataract surgery are not candidates for the TECNIS Multifocal.
