20 years ago all patients receive the same type of lens with their cataract surgery.
Because of these multiple options, lens selection can be a frustrating process.
The problem with intraocular lenses inserted with cataract surgery is that there is no way to try them before surgery to see which one you like the best.
The aspheric design of the Acry Sof lenses helps to minimize aberrations and enhance vision clarity.
Ever since their conception, multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) have been measured against their predecessor, monofocal lenses.
A big advantage of multifocal lenses, said Stephen G. D., Houston, is that the Re STOR lens (Alcon, Fort Worth, Texas) has the best near vision of any of the lenses. Slade said, “The disadvantage [of multifocal lenses] is that some patients, not very many, but some have problems with the quality of vision, either glare or halos or they describe waxy vision or things like that.” Paul J. D., clinical instructor of ophthalmology, Jules Stein Eye Institute, University of California at Los Angeles, said of the two multifocals, his preferred lens is the Re STOR Aspheric because it tends to be the most effective at eliminating the need for glasses for distance and near.
