How We Can Help

Intraocular Lens Options

Picking your intraocular lens is the biggest decision you have to make when it comes to cataract surgery. Find out more about different lens options below including multifocal, toric, monofocal, and laser cataract surgery.

Multifocal and accommodating intraocular lenses are artificial intraocular lenses that are designed to provide focus at multiple points. This may include distance objects (driving), intermediate objects (computer) and near objects (reading). This is in contrast to monofocal intraocular lenses which only have one focal point.

Multifocal Lens

The light adjustable lens (LAL) is unique in that it can be adjusted after surgery. This allows vision to be improved and customized to give better results than most other lenses. Vision can be focused for distance, near, or monovision.

Toric intraocular lenses are designed for people with astigmatism, which is present in the cornea. Toric lenses neutralize astigmatism to turn a blurry vision into clear vision. Astigmatism should be corrected to have the best possible vision without glasses.

Toric Astigmatism Lens

The most common type of intraocular lens used with cataract surgery is a monofocal. It is called monofocal because it has one focusing distance. It is set to focus for close work, medium-range or distance vision – chosen depending on your visual needs.
