Which implant is best for me?
Consider your visual needs and how you feel about glasses. The Multi-focal implant is ideal for those with active lifestyles who are annoyed by glasses. They allow you to turn a potentially negative condition, cataracts, into an opportunity to expand your vision. Not everyone, however, is a candidate for a Bifocal-like lens implant. You may have too much astigmatism or an abnormal retina.
If you do have significant astigmatism, then the Toric implants work beautifully to improve your distance vision after surgery.
So it kind of comes down to, "Are your eyes more like a football or a baseball." Our doctors will discuss your potential implant options are at the time of your cataract consultation after thoroughly evaluating your eyes and your visual needs. You only have cataract surgery once, so the choice of the appropriate implant is an important one. We will help you make the decision that is right for you.
