The advanced TECNIS Multifocal is an implantable lens that restores vision after cataract surgery and corrects presbyopia (the need for reading glasses). It’s the lens 94% of patients would choose again.
It delivers results superior to those of a standard multifocal lens and offers an excellent chance to become spectacle independent.
Exceptional Full Range of Vision
Only the advanced TECNIS Multifocal Lens enables you to see clearly at near, intermediate, and far distances without glasses in all light conditions.
Compare the following images. In the first image, which demonstrates vision with the TECNIS Multifocal Lens, you can see the coffee cup close up, the dashboard at intermediate, as well as road signs in the distance—all clearly.
Now, compare the second image. This image demonstrates what you might see with a monofocal lens. Although the intermediate and distance vision is clear, notice how the coffee cup is now blurry.
Immediately after surgery, some patients may notice rings around lights when driving at night. However, as the eye adjusts to the lens, the visual impression of rings may lessen or go away over time.
Am I a Candidate?
If you are diagnosed with cataracts and are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms, you may be a candidate for the TECNIS Multifocal Lens:
- Difficulty reading
- Difficulty seeing close objects
- Difficulty seeing to drive, especially at night
- Changing glasses prescriptions
- Needing bifocals
Ask your doctor if the TECNIS Multifocal Lens is an option that is right for your lifestyle and eye health.
How Do I Pay?
Medicare now allows greater access to advanced technology lens implants like the TECNIS Multifocal Lens.
A recent Medicare ruling on lens implants allows beneficiaries to upgrade to the full range of vision and greater spectacle independence provided by the TECNIS Multifocal Lens. This means the traditional costs associated with cataract treatment are covered by Medicare, with patients having the option to pay additional charges associated with receiving a presbyopia-correcting lens such as the TECNIS Multifocal Lens.
Some private insurance companies are following Medicare’s example and allowing patients to upgrade to the TECNIS Multifocal Lens. Contact your physician or insurance provider to learn more about your coverage and payment options.
