Dr. Linda Vu can help you select the lens that will best suit your lifestyle. At Linda Vision, our Los Angeles LASIK vision correction specialists also have the ability to combine advanced technology lens implants with LASIK to better achieve your visual goals. Modern science has made great leaps of progress and now there are several breakthrough advanced technology multifocal lenses that have been FDA-approved for correction of both distance and reading vision – ReSTOR® (by Alcon), CrystaLens™ (by Bausch + Lomb), and TECNIS® Multifocal intraocular lenses (by Abbott). Each type of multifocal lens works differently, and should be fit according to your individual needs. Dr. Linda Vu has extensive experience with all the lenses and helps each patient make an unbiased, informed decision on an implant that will provide a lifetime of clear vision.

Standard single focus Monofocal Intraocular Lens Options (one portion of your visual range)

Standard intraocular lens. This is a lens that focuses in the distance. Patients will notice an improvement in their distance vision after surgery, but will require the use of glasses in order to read up close.

Advanced Technology Multifocal Intraocular Lens Options (full range of vision)

ReSTOR® multifocal lenses

ReSTOR® multifocal lenses in Monterey Park

(Alcon) This lens lets patients see from near to far, usually without glasses. The lens uses a similar technology used in microscopes and telescopes to improve image quality. Most ReSTOR lens patients find that they can read a book, work on a computer, drive a car during all hours, and play golf or tennis with an increased freedom from glasses. Some patients may experience glare in low light conditions, so increased care should be taken when driving at night.

TECNIS® Multifocal

TECNIS® Multifocal Lens in Monterey Park

(Abbott) This is a static lens implant that gives simultaneous near, intermediate, and distance vision because it has three focusing zones. Most patients report that they see clearly at near, intermediate, and far distances without glasses in all light conditions. Immediately after surgery, some patients may notice rings around lights when driving at night. However, as the eye adjusts to the lens over time, the visual impression of lights typically lessens or goes away.

CrystaLens™ multifocal

CrystaLens™ Multifocal Lens in Monterey Park

(Bausch + Lomb) This is an “autofocusing” lens for far, near, and everything in between. The CrystaLens™ implant can give reading vision (within 1-2 feet), arms’ length (2-3 feet), and distance vision without glasses because this implant actually adjusts its position within the eye as the eye looks from far to near subjects, much like an autofocus mechanism on a camera. The CrystaLens™ is powered by the same ciliary body muscles that move and focus the eye’s own natural lens. Its unique, hinged shape allows for this lens movement and gives a seamless transition from far to arms’ length to near vision. Most people with the CrystaLens™ have clear far vision (driving, television) and intermediate vision (computer screen) without any glasses. About 95% of people can also read newsprint without glasses. Some people do need glasses for fine print, especially in dim light.
