Presbyopic Lens implants

Now there is technology that can help you see it all.

Patients have the option of a multifocal intraocular lens, a unique technological innovation that takes the place of the cloudy cataract, which most closely restores the way the eye used to work before wearing bifocals. This technology can provide you with quality vision – both up close and at a distance – giving you increased independence from reading glasses or bifocals. Enjoy better vision than you have for decades!


There are currently three presbyopia correcting IOLs that have been approved by the FDA. These include: the AcrySof® ReSTO® IOL, the Technis™ Multifocal IOL and the Crystalens® Accommodating IOL.

The multifocal implants are designed to give you a full range of vision, could help you see everything more clearly, from the type on this page to faraway landscapes. It’s sight changing and life changing.

The ReSTOR® multifocal implant is a unique technological innovation that allows for broader range of vision – near, far and in between - without the dependence of corrective lenses, restoring the way the eye used to work before wearing bifocals. With this new technology, more than 90 percent of patients who have these implants in both eyes are completely free of glasses for all daily activities.

Presbyopia Correcting IOLs

Presbyopia is a condition common in people over age 40 that results in difficulty seeing up close without the aid of bifocals, trifocals, or reading glasses. This condition is commonly thought to worsen as the natural lens in the eye hardens with age, making it difficult for the eye’s muscles to change its focus. Over time, the lens becomes cloudy and develops into a cataract. The most common way to treat a cataract is to remove the cloudy natural lens and replace it with an Intraocular Lens (IOL) made of plastic, silicone or acrylic.



Things to consider

There is no single intraocular lens option that works best for everyone. As you and Dr. Epitropoulos explore which type of lens is right for you, there will be many things to think about, and choices to be made.

Your individual medical condition, your eye’s characteristics (including whether you have astigmatism), your lifestyle, and the risk and benefits of treatment options are all things that you and Dr. Epitropoulos will discuss as you consider cataract surgery.
