An exciting development for cataract patients is that of intraocular lenses, which provide a solution for close up and distance vision. These are called trifocal implants. When combined with correction for astigmatism, these implanted lenses can give people back the vision they remember having when they were much younger.
Trifocal implants are available with different degrees of near focus, including closer reading distance or the more intermediate computer distance. These lenses are also available with additional aspheric and toric corrections, which enable us to correct any additional underlying visual error at the time of surgery. Trifocal lens implants are currently the most effective way of correcting both near and far vision.
