The multifocal intraocular lens (IOL) allows the eye to focus for both distance and near vision. This is made possible because of the diffractive design that makes it possible to give the lens two different strengths. This IOL can offer patients a certain degree of freedom where eyeglasses are concerned. Patients who receive this type of IOL must be selected carefully on account of the different types of vision it corrects. Patients who have tried multifocal contact lenses already have a good idea of how this type of IOL works. Studies have shown that multifocal intraocular implants can outperform multifocal contact lenses. Ask your eye care professional whether multifocal IOLs are suitable for you. This lens is not covered by the Quebec Health Insurance Plan.
