Accommodating lenses* helps to correct presbyopia by restoring some of the eyes ability to accommodate* to near targets. In general, patients who choose to have monofocal lens implants will be dependent on glasses either some or most of the time in about 95% of cases.
There are multiple types of IOLs to consider, including traditional monofocal lenses and premium lenses.
Standard monofocal lenses provide good distance vision but still require the use of reading glasses for near and intermediate work to overcome the presbyopia.
Fortunately, in most cases the cataract is removable and vision can be restored with an intraocular lens ("IOL")*.
When proceeding with cataract surgery, an important decision has to be made by the patient and doctor - choosing which IOL is best suited to restore vision and help meet the patient's visual demands and lifestyle needs.
