At the IRIS Ophthalmology Clinic, your optometrist and your ophthalmologist can recommend alternative solutions adapted to your personality and lifestyle, specifically through lens replacement with monofocal or multifocal intraocular lenses.
Multifocal lenses use an optical principle whereby light is separated into several focal points. This principle produces “simultaneous vision” at more than one distance at a time, in the same eye.
In some cases, multifocal contact lenses can help to understand or simulate the effect of an intraocular multifocal lens prior to surgery. Multifocal lenses may be right for you if you really want to get rid of your corrective lenses for both distance and near vision.
