Trifocal Intraocular Lens (IOL)

Trifocal Intraocular Lens (IOL) is a cutting-edge solution that offers patients clear vision at three distinct focal points: near, intermediate, and distance. By dividing incoming light into these three focal areas, Trifocal IOLs provide enhanced depth of focus, allowing for seamless transitions between different distances. This means you can enjoy clear vision for tasks such as reading, working on a computer, and engaging in outdoor activities without the need for glasses or contacts.

Multifocal Intraocular Lens (IOL)

Multifocal Intraocular Lens (IOL) is another advanced option for presbyopia correction. These lenses are designed to provide clear vision at multiple distances, typically near and far. With Multifocal IOLs, your visual system can adapt and switch between these distances, allowing for improved vision at various focal points. While Multifocal IOLs offer excellent results, it’s important to note that the focus transitions may be more noticeable compared to Trifocal IOLs.

TORIC (IOL)

Toric Intraocular Lens (IOL) is a specialized artificial lens designed to correct astigmatism, a common refractive error that distorts vision. Unlike traditional IOLs, Toric IOLs have additional optical power in specific meridians, allowing for precise astigmatic correction. By addressing both the cataract and astigmatism simultaneously, Toric IOLs offer comprehensive vision improvement.
