Dr. Scott Sykes talks about artificial lenses on Studio 5
Multifocal Intaocular Lenses (IOL)
Artificial lenses (IOLs) are implanted in the eye to replace natural lenses that have been damaged by cloudy cataracts or even presbyopia. The IOL procedure to replace a patient’s natural lens with a multifocal lens is the same procedure used in cataract surgery. Until recently, IOLs were only available to correct distance vision. These monofocal lenses helped improve distance vision after cataract surgery, but patient still needed glasses or contact lenses for near vision activities like reading or playing cards. Now, advancements in technology have produced a new multifocal IOL, which allows patients to see clearly at all distances—near, far and many distances in between. Multifocal IOL lenses such as the ReStor and the ReZoom™ preserve distance vision and also correct presbyopia, so many cataract surgery patients—and patients seeking treatment for presbyopia alone—can enjoy clear sight without relying on glasses.
Using apodization, diffraction and refraction technologies, the ReSTOR lens improves upon ordinary, monofocal replacement lenses, by providing comprehensive focusing capabilities so the patient can see clearly in a range of lighting conditions and at all distances—at noon or midnight, nearby or far away, and many distances in between. Up to 80% of those patients who use the ReSTOR lens don’t need to rely on glasses or contact lenses after surgery.
The ReZoom™ multifocal IOL helps patients focus clearly on objects at a range of distances and in varied light conditions. Featuring a patented lens design called Balanced View Optics Technology, the ReZoom™ lens has five spherical segments with smooth transitions in between so the eyes focus seamlessly from one distance to the next.
The center of the lens is optimized for bright light and distance vision, while the fourth zone supports near-vision in a variety of light conditions. the outermost zone will accommodate for low-light distance vision (such as when driving at night). The ReZoom™ lens is also specially designed to reduce internal reflections and minimize glare.
Surgeons at the Mount Ogden Eye Center and their multifocal lens counselors can help patients decide which new lens technology would be best for their lifestyle and activities.
If you have been diagnosed as having cataracts and are experiencing one or more of the following vision problems, you may be a candidate for the ReZoom™ multifocal IOL:
• Difficulty reading
• Difficulty seeing close-in objects
• Difficulty in driving, especially at night
• Frequent changes in glasses prescription
• Need for bifocals
