Traditionally, when a cataract develops (cloudy lens), the human lens is normally replaced with an artificial intraocular lens inside the eye. This lens is usually focused for distance vision and the patient needs to wear reading glasses for all near tasks.
Through recent advancements in lens technology, we now have intraocular lenses available that can provide the patient a range of vision (near through distance) enabling a high degree of freedom from spectacles. The ReSTOR and Tecnis multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) provide a full range of functional vision for patients who have a strong desire to significantly decrease their dependence on glasses and contacts.
Dr. Seidenberg is a board certified eye surgeon with advanced training in the RESTOR and Tecnis Multifocal lenses for presbyopia. He will be happy to help you choose the best Intraocular lens for you.
