If your doctor has told you that you are in the early stages of developing cataracts or has suggested that refractive lens exchange would be a good vision correction option, you might want to research emerging lens implant technology in the field of ophthalmology.
Recent technological advancements dramatically improve a patient’s ability to see with lens implants after cataract surgery or even as refractive lens exchange before the development of cataracts. With the advent of Advanced Technology Multifocal/Extended Range of Vision lens implants, presbyopia can now be corrected with a broader range of sharper vision. Presbyopia affects a large portion of our aging population and often requires bifocal glasses. People in their mid-forties that have trouble with reading typically experience the first effects of presbyopia. Presbyopia is an accommodation problem with the lens of the eye. As the lens hardens and becomes inflexible with age, it becomes more difficult to focus.
Extended Range of Vison/Multifocal Toric lenses also have the capability of correcting astigmatism.
The main types of Advanced Technology Lens implants are:
