With Multifocal IOL, patients with both cataracts and presbyopia can have both conditions corrected at the same time, eliminating the need for spectacles after surgery in most patients.

If you need cataract surgery and you want the greatest freedom from eyeglasses after surgery, you might want to consider multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) to expand your range of clear vision.

In the past, the primary goal of cataract surgery was to restore a person's vision for driving, watching television, and other distance vision tasks. To see clearly up close, a person would need to wear bifocals or reading glasses after cataract removal to correct the inevitable post-surgical presbyopia.

Currently, there are two commonly used multifocal IOLs that are FDA approved and available for cataract surgery performed in the United States: AcrySof IQ ReSTOR and Tecnis Multifocal IOL.

Tecnis Multifocal IOL

The Tecnis Multifocal IOL, marketed by Abbott Medical Optics (AMO), has been approved for use in the U.S. since 2009. The fully diffractive surface of the Tecnis Multifocal IOL provides advanced image quality at all distances under any lighting conditions and regardless of pupil size, according to AMO.


Each person has specific visual needs and concerns, and each type of IOL has its own set of benefits and limitations. An experienced cataract surgeon can help you choose the best combination of lens implants to match your individual needs — including helping you decide if mixing multifocal IOLs is a good option for you.
